Beautiful Botanical Illustrations with Ella Johnston


Create two watercolour and pigment ink botanical themed artworks with Ella Johnston. Final pieces will depict succulents, ferns and eucalyptus sprigs.


The workshop will focus on developing your watercolour confidence by having fun with the paints while learning simple skills and techniques. 

Watercolour techniques will be explored, including colour layering and mixing. We will also use our pigment ink pens to try techniques such as shading, stippling, cross-hatching and line work in both pen and pencil. You will be sketching and painting from life, from a template or photographs with plenty of hands on guidance from Ella. By the end of the workshop you should be confident in developing these drawing techniques.

Suitable for all


  • Sheets of A4 watercolour paper, tracing paper,  brushes, pencils and pigment ink pens will be available to work with on the day. If you would like to create a larger scale artwork please bring your own watercolour paper. There will be plenty of watercolours paints to work with but if you don’t want to share please bring your own watercolour equipment – basic colours are fine as we’ll be mixing and playing around with various shades. You should also bring a hard surface such as a drawing or clipboard to place your paper on if you are uncomfortable working on a table top. Ella will bring visual references.
  • Bring your lunch but drinks and biscuits supplied throughout the day.
