Developing a Garden Sketchbook

About

This full day course with tutor Peter David Scott, is aimed at people with some experience in watercolour painting. A sketchbook is an ideal way to record the changing seasons in the garden and is a valuable resource for developing artwork.
On this course you will learn to improve your sketching technique and develop a visual garden journal from your work. These lovely gardens are an ideal place to draw natural plant forms, with birds and butterflies to add movement to the page. Practical advice will be given on outdoor painting, on compiling a lightweight sketching kit, and there will be the opportunity to try some different sketching
methods and media.
Please bring:
• Watercolour paints
• Watercolour brushes
• A jam jar
• A pencil (2B, B, or HB) and eraser
• A folding seat
• A packed lunch
• Optional materials: pencil crayons
• A permanent ink pen
Materials supplied :
• An A4 hard backed watercolour sketchbook
• Some additional materials will be available on the day
Peter David Scott is a regular tutor at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and an award winning book illustrator. He works with TV naturalist Nick Baker on the monthly 'Hidden Britain' feature for BBC Wildlife magazine.
