Here we go gathering nuts in May - Botanical illustration in coloured pencil

Although it is unlikely we will find any nuts – this is thought to be a corruption of ‘knots’ referring to the Hawthorne blossoms in May.  There should be lots of interesting and colourful flowers emerging.  Capture your favourite blooms in coloured pencil – pick from Tulips, Primulas, velvety auriculas, Forget-Me-Nots, Wallflowers, Azaleas, Paeonies, Columbines and fruit blossoms amongst others.
This two day workshop starts at 9.45 am on 14 & 15 May and finishes by 4.30 pm each day.  Refreshments and lunches included.
 
What to bring
Any coloured pencils – preferably artists’ quality and watercolour pencils if you have any, as they can be used dry. 
A graphite pencil B or 2B
A pencil sharpener is vital (if possible with two sizes of sharpener) and the blade/s must be sharp!
Eraser – putty and plastic if possible
Sketch pad and paper such as cartridge, hot pressed or Bristol board if you already have some - otherwise there will be some for sale.
Drawing board with low tack tape or clips and a spare piece of heavyweight paper or lightweight card to put between your drawing board and the sheet of paper you will be working on.
Please bring some suitable subject material - something seasonal that takes your fancy!
