Excited to announce that I will be running a 6 week watercolour floral workshop, from my home in Weston, West Berkshire, RG20.


Running from 3rd March - 7th April 2022,  every Thursday morning (10am - 12.30pm).


Available to a maximum of 5 students.


Each week we will focus on different loose watercolour flowers and discus the focus and balance, when composing a floral pieces. With the intent to create a beautiful painting, towards the end of each session.


Week 1 - Loose Roses


Week 2 - Loose Peonies


Week 3 - Leaves and filler flowers


Week 4 - Loose Wisteria / vase of lilacs


Week 5 - Wild flower field scenes


Week 6 - An ensamble of what has been learnt to create a loose floral painting of your choice.


Refreshments will be available throughout, selection of teas and coffee and hopefully some treats from a local cafe.


Materials are not included - however I will have some things to play with like some watercolour tube paints, mixing pallets, making fluid, wax resist, water pots and additional brushes.


Suggested materials to have (and so you can practise at home) are:



Perhaps, Daler Rowney Graduate 5 brush synthetic watercolour set.



I like, Winsor & Newton 230471 cotman 45 Half pan Studio watercolour set.



Paper pad to practise tecniques and a watercolour block for your final composition pieces.


Possible Cheaper paper:

Hahnemuhle Harmony Watercolour Spiral Pad Hot Pressed A4



Bockingford Watercolour Block 140lb/300gms 9x12"/228x305mm Hot Press


A watercolor block is a pad of watercolor paper that's bound on all sides with a coating of a rubber like material. You paint on the top sheet of paper and then remove it after it dries flat.


I like to use hotpress watercolour paper as it is less absorbent, smooth to allow detail and allows for more time to adjust the paint while drying. Also allowing us to play more with dispersing colour! However coldpress and rough paper is still fun to use.


If you have any questions about the workshop, please do get in contact!
