Using Wet-in-Wet Watercolour Technique to paint a colourful Autumn leaf 

After a career in Graphic design Jackie Isard has branched out into water colours,  has been recognised by the Society of Botanical Artists and is working towards full membership. She aims to plan courses in which students can study and practice watercolour techniques to use in Botanical Painting as well as painting other wildlife/nature subjects. Courses are open to all (some drawing and painting experience is necessary)......

'I intend to inspire, encourage, advise and give confidence! I have a great love for nature and fowering plants, especially our native wildflowers. I’m an avid supporter of protecting our declining meadows and ensuring the survival of our beloved bees.....

The Wet-in Wet technique is a super useful way to get a lot of your painting done quickly and in a very natural looking way. It is a popular technique with Botanical Artists and used to achieve a more natural base to the painting. It is especially good for Autumn leaf painting. On this course you will learn about the different effects water has on paper and practice the wet-in-wet technique. I will teach you the skills to use it with more confidence!'

Please see the attached materials list (PDF, 61kB) for the course.
