Botanical Art Workshop - White Flowers

Botanical Art Workshop - White Flowers

Saturday 12th June  10am-4pm

Where: 410A Station Street, Thornbury 3071.


Lunch catered by Little Tienda Cafe!


Painting white flowers with watercolour can often be a challenging without the use of white paint. In this workshop Jessie will guide you through her step-by-step process to create your own beautiful botanical painting of a white flower, working from a printed photograph.


You will gain an understanding in:

  • How to draw and transfer your drawing onto watercolour paper
  • Observing light, shade, form and differing greys
  • Basic colour theory and how to mix different greys
  • How to create your own grey colour chart
  • Watercolour techniques and how to use them on white flowers including wet-on-wet, wet on dry and dry brush
  • How to avoid a muddy painting


This workshop welcomes students of all experience levels, from beginners to advanced. You will return home with your own beautiful watercolour painting of a white flower, the knowledge and confidence to create your own painting as well as notes to help guide you.


All art materials provided as well as tea, coffee and a delicious lunch by Little Tienda Cafe! Just bring yourself and a notebook if you'd like to take notes.
