This workshop is both aimed at artists wishing to improve their skills and knowledge but also to those with very little experience of Floral painting. All students are welcome and the instructor will be adapting to everyone's skill levels.

Students will learn how to paint flowers effectively to take advantage of their natural beauty.

Flowers can be an intimidating subject to paint for both beginners and more experienced painters. Students will learn how to deal with their subtle colours, shapes, lights and shades, and their near constant shifting and changing.

James will show students various techniques he uses from under paintings and glazes to direct alla prima and palette knife painting.

James lives and works in the Scottish Borders. He was part of the full time teaching faulty at SARA for several years.

There are 8 spaces available on this workshop and students will work in our ateliers at SARA Academy, where we also will serve the lunch. Please note that if less than 4 students sign up for the workshop or if the workshop needs to be cancelled, we will inform students at least one month before start and a full refund will be paid, otherwise the deposit is non-refundable.
