Watercolour Workshop


Kathryn Wickson - Autumn Leaves & Berries


Kathryn is a member of the Art Society and runs workshops for the Centre of England Arts at Hampton in Arden. 

Her beautiful loose watercolours are inspired by nature, in particular flowers and hedgerows.  Her paintings are full of colour and her interest lies, not just with the flowers, but in the abstract textures and shapes formed by the surrounding foliage.  In this workshop she will be concentrating on leaves and berries.

Demonstration by


Carol Hill – Oil - Landscape


Carol learnt to paint whilst living in the Far East in the 1960's and it was there that her passion for painting began. She attended the art department in Hong Kong University under an American resident tutor who taught her oil painting for two years. The subjects were mainly landscape, still-life and portraiture as well as seascapes. She also studied Chinese painting with Professor Lau Ta Po for over a year. Carol gradually started to paint in watercolours and enjoyed the opportunity of being able to paint in both mediums.
A member of
