Spend a day painting with the highly accomplished William Newton and discover the methods he uses to capture stunning depictions of the traditional Essex coastline. Working in watercolour William will demonstrate how to create a high level of accuracy in the subject with a subtle use of detail. You will also explore composition and colour use; key elements necessary to make any scene at once engaging and convincing.
