Watercolour Painting and Illustration
Course Duration: 9 weeks Course Fee: £67
Come and explore your creative side with established artist and lecturer. An introduction to the practice of painting with watercolours - be it fine art or illustrative work. You don`t need to know how to draw. In the first few weeks we go through the basic watercolour techniques - mainly in landscapes - looking at skies, water, trees etc and I will show you how to achieve these. If, however, you do want to learn the basics of drawing then that can be accommodated. Information sheets are given out for each aspect of the course.
You will learn how to use this difficult but rewarding medium to produce works that will surprise you. Above all the class will be in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
If you can bring:
• A large (size 8 - 10)
• A medium (size 4 - 6)
• A small (size 3 or smaller} round watercolour brush
The above brushes can be sable or man-made sable substitute
• A watercolour pad or paper
• A set of watercolours
• A pencil
• A small beaker to put water in
• A Board to put your paper on
The tutor will bring a selection for people to buy if they need to. If you have something you want to paint, bring it along, but the tutor will start with the basics - showing different techniques in the first couple of lessons and starting with a still life.
