Beginners’ 3-day Watercolour Workshop with Marta Salamon

Monday, March 27 – 10:00 am - Wednesday, March 29 – 3:00 pm

This workshop will follow on from the beginners’ drawing workshop held in 2016, although participants need not have attended the previous workshop. All materials will be supplied.

The workshop will cover basic colour mixing, creating light and dark within the composition and the varied ways to apply paint at different stages of the painting, starting with a wash. A line drawing will be supplied by the tutor so that all the time can be spent painting. The subject will be decided closer to the time of the workshop and will depend on what plant material is available.

Alternatively, students can bring in their own drawing ready to transfer onto a piece of A4 watercolour paper.

Marta is a highly experienced botanical artist and art teacher, has exhibited widely for many years and won the Celia Rosser Medal at the 2016 Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition in Melbourne for her painting Blackwood Wattle. In 2016, she also exhibited at the Museum of NSW Florilegium, the Sydney Botanical Gardens Botanica Exhibition, and won Best in Show at the Sherbrooke Gallery Australian Wild Exhibition for her painting Brown Owl on Wire.

The workshop will take place from 27 to 29 March from 10am to 3pm on each day.

Members $285
Non-members $315
