Our chosen subject will be the fruiting cone of a Banksia serrata (Old Man Banksia). This iconic Australian tree has a unique fruiting cone filled with character. Our aim is to paint this using a variety of techniques to capture its intricate detail.

 Students learn in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere with plenty of open discussion about the watercolour techniques used to create this beautiful subject. Practical demonstrations of each technique will be shown allowing students to progress to a finished watercolour painting.

Learning Outcomes: 

  1. Develop skills in layering transparent, staining and opaque pigments
  2. Understand techniques in building high levels of detail
  3. Colour mixing using transparent washes
  4. Creating an iconic Australian native painting in watercolour

Cost $380
