Description

Watercolours are a beautiful, accessible medium that anyone can learn. Versatile, and far more forgiving than they are given credit for!

In this 5-week course you will learn about different brushes and what they do, how to preserve whites, lift out and create soft edges. We will also experiment with textures using alcohol, rice, dish soap and more. Create 5 landscape paintings by following along, step-by-step, with an experienced artist-tutor. Improve your skill and confidence whilst being inspired by 17th century Dutch Landscape Painters and contemporary landscape artists. 

Beginners and returning students will benefit as we explore different scenes and using techniques in new ways

FAQ

What is your Covid Policy?

For the time being we are keeping numbers low and using breaks to ensure the studio is adequately ventilated. Weather allowing, we keep the doors open. If you have a cough or sneeze, but have not tested positive for Covid, you will be able to attend class but we ask that you wear a mask. If you have been to a crowded venue, public transport or had contact with someone who has Covid please take a lateral flow test before class.

What happens if I miss class?

If you let me know is advance, as a one-off, I will offer to run a catch-up session for you. I'm also uploading lessons and materials online which will be provided to you, free forever.
