Foxgloves in Graphite and Watercolour

Sunday 14th July 10 am – 4 pm.. £40*

Find out about these fascinating plants with botanical artist Bill Phillips. Foxgloves are poisonous but featured in folk medicine and were an important source of drugs to treat heart disease. Bill will describe the structure of foxglove flowers and how this relates to bumble bee pollination. Working from real specimens and photographs, you will develop your own composition and explore the graphite and watercolour techniques needed to produce an attractive final painting.
