For new artists, watercolours help you to achieve a "painterly" quality to your art.

For experienced artists, watercolours can expand the options available to you to achieve the effects you want.

The classes are supported with demonstrations and instruction which are then followed by the students working on their own piece. The aim of this course, week by week is to develop your skills and understanding of the world of the watercolourist.

The course content will cover;

  • Introduction Materials and their uses,
  • Handling the Pigment – simple exercises of mixing and applying colour and the manipulation of tone and the uses of layering.
  • Preliminary sketches,
  • Wet-on-wet;
  • Graded washes;
  • Hard and soft edges;
  • Dry brush using the rigger brush.
  • Reclaim the white.
  • Weeks 5 & 6
  • Flowers and Masking
  • Fluid Spray and drop
  • Negative and positive painting
  • Using the white of the paper.
  • Using cling wrap and waxed paper to create textures to imply landscape elements.
