With Jake to guide you, learn how to put the life into your wildlife studies through the imaginative use of colour and dynamic brushwork. He will show you how to capture the light and movement in animal subjects; an invaluable skill to be used in all your watercolour work. You will complete two paintings during the day, exploring different styles of working.
This workshop is all about painting in watercolour, don’t worry about your drawing skills as for speed you can trace the subject. All the focus will be on learning about dynamic colour combinations, expressive brushwork, paint consistency and everything else that goes into creating successful paintings in watercolour.
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
