  • “What a positive and inspiring experience it was to stay at 'Il Collaccio' for Elaine's painting holiday. She brought out the best in me by sharing her tips and techniques.

    I will never forget the tranquil ambiance in the classroom with the seriously working friendly students from all over the world. It is a learning experience by itself to look at each others work as well. And after a morning of concentration it is so relaxing to walk with new friends to the restaurant for a wonderful lunch.

    The afternoons I spend often walking through the meadows with so many wild flowers and enjoying the gorgeous views on the mountains in the distance. It was the most perfect holiday for me.”

Do you want to take your botanical art to a new level?
This web based Certificate Course is designed for those who have already gained a level of confidence with the techniques of painting botanical art in watercolour.
This course is VERY different…its about the bigger concepts behind the art. lComposition, depth, scale and drama and also perceived problem areas such as painting white on white. It’s self-paced and you are supported whilst you learn with videos, email and Skype.

Enrolment is open. I have two places from eight remaining Download a brochure and contact me soon.
