From botanists recording varieties in local orchards to explorers illustrating their faraway discoveries, fruit has been a time-honoured subject of botanical art. In this masterclass, you will learn how to give them form using light and shadows and how to mix the right colours to make them glow.
You will also learn how to render the varied textures, from the thin satin skin of a pear to the leathery grain of a pomegranate. Insect damage and blemishes as a finishing touch will give your fruit portrait a personality of their own.
Sandrine will demonstrate techniques in sketching, composing a painting, colour-mixing, wet-in-wet watercolour, harmonic shadows and dry brush work for the details.
The day will consist of a series of demonstrations as well as one-to-one support and is suitable for all levels.
