Classes are relaxed and informal yet aim to provide a strong foundation in watercolour techniques that can be used to enhance further creativity.
By using a variety of approaches, find new ways to get in touch with your creative spontaneity and to translate this onto paper.
Subject matter will look to aspects of nature and may include one class outdoors. Sessions include many tutor demonstrations, plus discussion.
Suitable for beginners but all levels are very welcome!
In this course you will have the opportunity to:
· Learn watercolour techniques such as washes, wet in wet, dry brush
· Gain more confidence through more brush practice and learn how to use other materials with watercolour paints – i.e. – pencil, crayons, salt and masking fluid.
· Discover new ways to create light-filled, transparent paintings
For the first class, please bring a small tube of black watercolour plus a size 12 round watercolour brush (an Oriental bamboo brush would be ideal). Also bring one large or several small sheets of 185gsm watercolour paper (suggest Canson).
Additional materials such as watercolours will be discussed in the first class.
