With Linda Hampson Member of the SW Society of Botanical Artists

For those of you unable to attend Linda’s course in person we offer the option of joining us online.

The Apple course is a wonderful taster for those of you who itch to draw, but just aren’t sure where to start. It is equally interesting for improvers who might want to go back to basics as a reminder of the simplicity of the technique. You can be assured of an artwork to be proud of at the end of this lesson.

A set of notes, guidance on paper and pencils to use and an instructional video for this course are all included. All you need is a small selection of Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, good quality drawing paper and a few pencil case items (you will be supplied with a detailed list on purchasing the course).

We invite you to share your outcomes with Linda and of course be in touch if you have any concerns or need help by email for the duration of the course.

Coloured pencil is a marvellously versatile medium and it is genuinely an easy medium to master when you have learned the basic techniques. Linda invites you to join her for a series of workshops specifically using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. You will learn how to layer and blend and various other ‘tricks’ in this easy introductory lesson. Complete beginners and improvers will enjoy this ‘back to basics’, simple, but very impressive apple drawing technique.

ONLINE COURSES will be shared to you via email, there will be a video link supplied to watch on your laptop, iPad or PC. Videos run for around an hour, to an hour and a half, with some at two and a half hours, depending on detail and complexity required. They are clearly divided into short bitesized sections.

Each course comes with a detailed pencil requirements list so you know exactly what you will need for the project and to progress and experiment on your own. Please ensure you read your list carefully and do ask if there is anything that isn’t clear!

The accompanying step-by-step course notes will also be made available for you to download and can be printed off for your own personal use. Course notes also contain the ‘pause points’ for each section on the video so you can swiftly find your next step.

We also run courses with Linda Hampson at The Old Kennels so if you would like to join us ‘in person’ do browse our website. We also offer 4* B&B accommodation please enquire or see our course accommodation page full details – it is worth noting that during course times we only have attendees staying here so our accommodation is not available through the usual online system.
