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.
Whatever your preferred subject matter, a day spent painting with Jake will provide you with invaluable tips on colour use and paint consistency, as well as composition and focal points.
In order to give you as much painting time as possible you will be able to trace rather than getting bogged down in preliminary drawings. You will complete two paintings during the day, exploring different styles of working.
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
