Angeline returns to Rosemoor for her second course. She is an award winning botanical artist, and her work is included in international collections including the Dr Sherwood Gallery at Kew, The RHS Lindley Library and The Hunt Institute in America. She is a regular tutor at Capel Manor College in Regents Park and a member of the Society of Botanical Artists. Trained also as a jewellery designer her passion is for studying and portraying the structure and intricacies of botanical subjects in watercolour both for illustration and art purposes.
Taking the Foliage Garden at Rosemoor as inspiration, students will be encouraged to choose a small selection of contrasting leaves to paint. Students will be shown how to select material and consider the needs of a botanical painting, they will be encouraged to produce accurate drawings and shown how to use watercolour paint to reproduce the different colours and textures needed to represent leaves on paper. Students can try out different colour mixes and different watercolour techniques for applying the paint to create effective surface textures. There will be demonstrations and discussion of techniques and approach throughout the course. It will be useful to have some prior drawing and watercolour painting experience.
