Description

Learn to paint with watercolour in this 2 hour workshop, perfect for anyone wanting to establish or grow their painting practise in a relaxed and supportive environment. Equipped with demonstrations and experimentation of the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting, you’ll leave this class with a work of art that you’ll be proud to take home and show off! 

Throughout the workshop you will learn about the specific properties of watercolour paint, brush-work, colour mixing, rendering light and shade, tonal value, and design in watercolour painting. Under the guidance of artist, Vanessa Bradley, you’ll work from a variety of still life objects and reference imagery to create your own unique composition using the techniques learnt throughout the class.

By the end of the class (and a few glasses of wine), students will have completed one of their own watercolour paintings, and be able to take their new skills to continue developing in their own style in this particular medium.

Really enjoyed the class! Great foundation skills and I have invested in some paints after the class to keep going with it.
