Botanical Colours of Autumn Short Course – Mary Dillon
22nd-25th October 2018

Four-day workshop – suitable for beginners and ‘refreshers’ with Mary Dillon

Due to popular demand, we are thrilled to offer beginners a taste of botanical painting using the rich, saturated colours found in autumn.

Award-winning, Irish botanical artist Mary Dillon, is known for capturing the essence of a plant through its sensuality and frailty.  Mary’s evocative use of deep colour in her paintings, many of which are held in collections worldwide, brings a certain joy to the heart.

Mary will share her relaxed and stress-free method of painting autumn subjects with newcomers to botanical art, as well as sharing new tips with those who have dared to ‘dip-in’ previously!
