These Zoom classes are very popular. It Hao provides a video lesson and a series of pdf’s showing various stages in the development of the painting at the beginning of the week and we then complete the lesson and email him the finished painting before the Zoom Session on Thursday afternoon. At this session It Hao reviews each of the emailed paintings suggesting how they could be improved, then he demonstrates the techniques or problem areas that we have had problems with. This methodology gives you the advantage of being able to complete the painting at your own pace and I have found that there is the opportunity of sometimes doing the exercise twice.
This watercolour class is perfect and open to absolute beginners or those who have previously enjoyed with some experience.
The course will cover basic and traditional watercolour techniques, basic drawing, wet-in-wet, drybrush, blending and glazing. In addition, composition, value, perspective and figure work will be introduced to help in watercolour painting. Also from colourful to limited palette, and develop your ability to tackle all sort of subjects with confidence. We will be working with subjects including landscapes, marine, street scenes, interior and still life. There will be short demonstrations throughout the course to give more understanding and handling each session.
