Watercolour Painting (All Levels)

This course is structured so that students with either little watercolour experience or those with many years of painting experience benefit from the sessions.

What The Course is About:

Using a variety of techniques you will explore ways of producing a competent watercolour painting. Subject matter will range from still life objects through to landscapes, architecture and the human figure. Each week will focus on a particular technique with exercises that explore its use. The tutor will demonstrate all of the techniques and you are able to paint along if you wish, so that you understand the technique completely. You will discuss the work at the end of each session and you can also use the school library as a resource for looking at past watercolour masters. This course is designed for smaller numbers, to allow more one to one time with your tutor and to help you progress more quickly.

Materials Required:

What to bring to the first session: Pencils – HB or 2B (or a selection of your own choosing) sharpener, Pencil rubber, Brushes – 1” flat brush, No 8 flat brush, No 16 round, AllNo 8 round brush - sable or synthetic (Please bring what you have already.

End of course:

What will I achieve? At the start you will learn the basic techniques of watercolour beginning with colour mixing and tonal drawing. You will progress on to perspective, composition and then learn techniques from dry brush to wet-in-wet, which will enable you to produce a painting with confidence.
