Westacre is very pleased to welcome back Isobel Bartholomew who loves to teach people of all levels and share her vast experience with them. A teacher and botanical artist for 30 years, Isobel was a founder and is now President of the Iceni Botanical Artists ( whose members are the best from across East Anglia. Isobel has been awarded RHS medals on 9 occasions, exhibits regularly, works with specialist flower societies and is published in several books, the RHS Lindley Library and the Highgrove Florilegium.

Throughout the history of art there has always been a place for the painting of fruit and vegetables whether in oils or watercolours, and includes those done by the great Botanical artists.
The depiction of colour, form, texture and surface markings always presents exciting challenges and there is usually plenty of choice of specimens in the early Autumn. For example, apples, pears, blackberries, aubergine, peppers, grapes, sweetcorn, beetroot, onions and garlic all make wonderful subjects to paint.
With two days at our disposal, we can thoroughly explore accurate drawing, composing the best design for the subject; and developing key skills of colour matching and painting techniques.
Through group demonstrations and encouraging one-to-one tuition, each individual can work at their own pace in a relaxed but stimulating environment.
