My first workshop on Watercolours was a great introduction to techniques for effects of mist, waves and one colour layering. I had someone wanting to buy one of my class paintings - so it must have been a successful workshop..
Although I expected more of the class I still enjoyed it. Tony's approach to watercolour is relaxed and the big screen demonstration is easy to follow.
I learnt how to work a 'wet edge' and the importance of using good quality paper, Great value for money.
