Painting a single leaf is a wonderful way to play with watercolour and botanical illustration. There is no end to the ways in which leaves can be arranged on paper, from slightly abstract to almost forensically scientific.
In this course, Kate will take her students through some of the different types of leaves to be painted: Eucalypt leaves, which allow for lovely colour mixing; crispy fallen oak leaves, which provide wonderful shapes and shadows to play with; dead skeletal leaves where there is a world of detail; delicate fresh shiny leaves.
The class will look at a different type of leaf every day.
A materials list is available from the Friends’ office.
