Compose a flower piece in the Western European art tradition, as late 17th – mid 18th century Masters would have done.

We start by visiting a museum and explore how Master painters arranged shape, shade and light to create harmonious floral compositions.

We spend the next three days studying real flowers, chalking under-drawings, then progressing to pen, ink washes and body colour, closely following the traditional artistic process.
