Susan Boddy – Get Started in Watercolour (2 day course)
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February
ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED
This two day course is designed to give you the essential skills you need to begin your watercolour journey
For those who have never used watercolour paints or who need to go back to the start to hone basic watercolour skills, this course will lead you slowly through the important techniques and practices needed to produce successful paintings. Choice of paints, brushes and paper will be explained. You will learn how to mix varying consistencies of pigment and water and use these effectively in laying down washes. Basic colour mixing will be introduced. ‘Wet into wet’ and ‘wet onto dry’ techniques will be demonstrated and practised, then used in simple paintings. Skies, trees and buildings will be worked on and a ‘loose and free’ approach will be encouraged.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
