Gallery Talk: Becoming a Botanical Painter with Maura Allen
September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
My interest in plants and gardening and my career as an art teacher have been very happily merged through the medium of botanically painting. The exacting technical requirements and botanical accuracy required a rethink in my approach to painting. Having come from a conceptual training at Art School and many years as teacher using very creative and free techniques to encourage children to succeed it has been a huge challenge to work within the very narrow perimeters of super accurate water colour painting. I hope I will be able to take you on this journey of mastering a new career in middle age!
