Paint a Topiary Garden in Watercolour

Saturday 14th November

11.30am to 3.30pm

at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, Maidenhead, SL6 4PF

Topiary gardens are often a wonderful mix of organic and geometric forms, providing a great opportunity to depict forms tonally and also for mixing green hues.  In addition to watercolour we may add texture with a few coloured pencils, ink or oil pastel.  Please bring your own materials and reference of a garden you would like to paint.  An information list will be available from Norden Farm.

Jo’s  watercolour workshop explores the colours of Morocco that left a lasting impression on her.  We will reference the works of Paul  Klee, and August Macke, derived from their famous journey to Tunisia with Louis Moilliet in 1914, simplifying shapes, and experimenting with loose grids of colour.

Please bring your own watercolours, brushes and paper, a sketchbook for working out ideas and if you would like to bring your own, a reference from North Africa.
