Make your own botanical watercolour with guidance of visual artist Glafira from ‘The Muses` Grove’. Explore your passion for nature and art by translating it into a hand-drawn and hand-painted work on paper. During the workshop the participants and the teacher will look for inspiration together, in books and at the plants or fruits brought by the artist. After developing ideas everyone will start by composing the elements on paper and drawing the shapes. The pencil drawing will be erased slightly so it is still seen, but does not shine through the paint. As transparency is the main characteristic of watercolour, the group will focus on controlling the fast-drying thin layers of paint by painting on dry 300 gsm watercolour paper. After this workshop you will be able to take home a beautiful painting which you can frame and hang in your living room!

The Muses’ Grove is a project of botanical and animalistic contemporary artworks by visual artist Glafira Taratynova. The Muses’ Grove explores her passion for nature by translating moments of awe into intricate linocuts, each cut echoing the essence of the natural world. The scenes of fascination painted with aquarelle, Taratynova occasionally screen prints by hand, breathing new life into these natural scenes. She is mostly inspired by traditional botanical documentation, medieval Indian and Christian manuscript miniatures and by her travels. The core of Taratynova’s work involves evoking a sense of wonder and connection to the beauty that surrounds us.
