In this class, you will learn how to create a dynamic watercolour painting through refining skills learnt in past watercolour workshops or from previous experience. Beginners, intermediate level painters or anyone who came to our first round of watercolour workshops are most welcome.  

You will work with objects such as fruits, flowers and vegetables in a large still life composition that you will aim to paint in full on a large piece of watercolour paper.
