Learn a little about British dragonflies and damselflies, and to draw and paint these amazing animals.

This two-day workshop will give you the chance to learn a little about British dragonflies and damselflies, and to draw and paint these amazing animals. Designed for those with some experience of watercolour illustration you will work from insects in the wild and from museum specimens.

By the end of the workshop you should have completed a finished watercolour of a damsel or dragonfly in its’ natural habitat.

Tips on composition, painting leaves, tackling transparent wings, and showing shine on the body will be covered. There will also be the opportunity to do some sketching in the Garden, and to examine and draw the fascinating larval forms of these animals as well.

Lizzie will be on hand throughout to offer support and advice, and will demonstrate techniques that may be of use.

This course is suitable for those with some experience of using watercolours. It is not suitable for beginners. Please look at other art courses on offer that are designed with beginners in mind.
