Botanical Art Painting Holiday in Norway
Join Gaynor Dickeson in Norway for a seven-day botanical art workshop and holiday June 29 – July 6, 2014. You will paint plants and flowers from the area. Each morning you will get active teaching in watercolour or coloured pencil according to your preference, but the afternoons are yours to spend as you wish. Gaynor plans to be available for guidance most afternoons. You can expect six days of botanical art tuition from an artist very familiar with the area in South-Eastern Norway.
You will spend seven nights in the Thon Hotel, in Åsgårdstrand, on the banks of the Oslo Fjord, Norway; your studio will be a conference room overlooking the beautiful fjord. Åsgårdstrand was the home of Edvard Munch and has lovely views; the area is renowned amongst artists for its extraordinary light.
