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.
