04 June 2016 • Botanical Illustration – Cacti and Succulents

It has been the longest time since I picked up a paintbrush. Sarah put us through our paces with drawing and painting methods to get us in the zone. It was so nice to try some new techniques and learn a whole range of skills in a mere two hours. I'm super proud of the work I produced and it was lovely to meet some new people. By the end of the class I was feeling so relaxed and super keen to do another class in the near future. I would definitely recommend this class whether you're experienced, wanting to try new things or meet some likeminded folk in the same boat as you.
