Watercolour painting is a very mindful and creative medium that can help wash your worries away. This class promotes expression and experimenting so you can come away feeling refreshed! A course aimed at those just starting out or getting back to painting once more.
There will be a chance to examine different painting materials and equipment. Colour mixing, layering and handing will be included plus an introduction to tonal and textural qualities in paintings. We shall look at different styles of painting and examine the works of other artists in relation to our own work.
The tuition will be focused on the needs of each individual as we all have different levels of experience, expectations and goals.
All materials will be supplied. However you may wish to bring along your own materials and images in addition to work with if you wish.
