Watercolour has many aspects. It can be used to make preliminary sketches before creating a major painting, for instance. Discover the power of watercolour with step by step and exploratory approaches. Learn from studying the masters as well as still life and landscape. Traditional and contemporary approaches will be used. Such as, wet on wet and dry brush techniques, colour theory as well as some drawing techniques. Suitable for all levels. These workshops can be booked individually or together if you wish to continue your work in more depth.
