Spend an intensive day studying aspects of landscape in watercolour, and finishing with completing a small painting. Students will be encouraged to “loosen up” and learn to use the unique watery qualities of watercolour paint to achieve dynamic and fresh depictions of the landscape. Students will learn techniques for tackling foliage, rocks, flowers, grass and clouds, as well as tips on accurate perspective drawing. Emphasis will be on a range of textural effects and also on capturing light for different times of day. Students will concentrate on colour mixing, how to control the water and maintaining luminosity.
We will work from photographic images in the studio, and though the tutor will bring images, students are very much encouraged to bring landscape photographs and images which they would like to paint.
This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced artists. Those with more experience are invited to bring images or aspects of landscape that they find problematic or would like to engage with. After a morning of structured exercises, Tanya works individually with each student at their own level to complete a small finished painting.
