Botanical Painting Diploma begins...

My course folder has finally arrived, i'm really looking forward to getting started on this diploma in Botanical Paitning. Since completing my art & design degree i have felt a little lost without something to study and learn about so i'm keen to get started with this.

I hope soon to have my very own little art studio that will overlook my courtyard garden, the perfect place to study and paint flowers. I'm looking at doing a botanical studies course too as i would like to learn more about the plants themselves as well as how to draw and paint them.

Please wish me luck, this is completely outside my comfort zone art wise as i'm much more of an abstract and doodle sort of girl, this style of art is going to be very different, but i'm always up for a challenge!
