Have you been curious to paint with watercolour but don’t know where to start?
Join Nicole Black as she walks you through introductory techniques and approaches to watercolour painting. Once the basics have been covered, we will look to create a watercolour study of an indoor plant. There will be a discussion around creating an interesting composition for your work, building up layers, and developing an enticing colour palette for your final artwork. There will also be the opportunity to experiment with additional mediums!
You will walk away with an array of tips and tricks, advice on art materials to invest in to start your own watercolour practice and a new-found confidence in painting!
This class is suitable for beginners or those looking to shake up their practice! Kids and teens are welcome in this class.
