About the Event

Watercolour Workshop: Painting Spring Flowers

Tutor Sheila O’Brien

Cost £35 for the one day course

payable in advance.

If you would like to book both days the cost will be £65

This course is suitable for all levels from beginners to the more experienced.

(plants will be dependent on availability at the time)

Whilst some will want to paint a botanical study we shall also be exploring applying background washes and a looser approach to painting flowers.

Both hot pressed and not paper is available to purchase on the day.

Plants will be supplied but please feel free to bring along your own.

Requirements. The following list is a guide for beginners as I am sure that the more experienced painters will have their own preferences for brushes and paint:


Ultramarine and cobalt blue

Windsor Lemon and Windsor Yellow

Permanent Mauve and Permanent Rose

Burnt Sienna

Paynes Grey


It is very hard to suggest colours due to plant availability so please bring along what you have. I am more than happy to share mine if necessary.


Round 1, 2 and 6 ( botanical study)

If you intend adding a background a larger brush will also be required.

Masking fluid ( optional)

Rock salt and table salt ( for background)

Drawing paper and tracing paper

A board and tape ( approx. ( 16 x 12) Not required if using a block.

Kitchen towel

Small vase or pot for if you are painting a flower specimen.

Maximum Capacity: 10 Students
