Discover the secrets of successful plant and flower painting on a residential painting holiday or non-residential course with award-winning botanical artist, Evelyn Binns.

How can I improve my drawing? What do I use to get that depth of colour? How do you get that shine on the leaves? Whether you are just a beginner or have been painting some while, Evelyn’s courses and holidays offer exclusive opportunities to learn at first hand some of the skills, techniques and tips that have helped Evelyn win seven RHS Gold Medals and become one of the country’s most admired botanical watercolour artists.

  • Confidence in using colour
  • Layering techniques

Limited to a maximum of only six painters, informal workshop sessions in inspirational but comfortable and stylish surroundings in idyllic locations ensure everyone receives one-to-one tuition and guidance, but is free to practice and develop their art in the way they feel most comfortable.
