On this one-day course you will use a variety of watercolour techniques to enable you to paint and draw accurately natural autumn subjects. This course is suitable for all levels and is a good introduction into colour mixing, identifying the various colours and tones in the plant, drawing from life/observation and learning watercolour techniques. There will be regular demonstrations and plenty of one to one help to enable you to work at your own pace.
