She will demonstrate different watercolour techniques that can be used in botanical art and explain the difference in materials and styles. Participants will learn how to produce an initial drawing of selected fungi, what to include in composition, and how to produce an eye catching and aesthetically pleasing botanical watercolour of fungi.
