Botanical Drawing and Painting MOOC

I’ve started this free online course this week with Edx, this is my first painting of a fuscia from our balcony. I have been collecting materials:

  • Masking fluid
  • Art water pens
  • small paint tin
  • Bockingford Sketching pad
  • Painting crayons by Aquarelle
  • brushes, pencils and ink pens

Wendy Hollender gives excellent advice on what materials to get and how to use them, she introduced me to using water crayons, dark ones to set the dark tones and then the colour ones on top, also water pens to create a watercolour effect. I have got various graphite pencils and blocks, as well as some Rotring pens, paints and masking fluid
