This is a class for anyone who wishes to explore the exciting potential of contemporary watercolour.
Ideas explored in this class include discussions around watercolour materials, brushes, paint, papers, composition, applications, techniques and colour theory. We will look at different artists who have used watercolours, build a visual databank of various techniques and discuss the elements that make up a great work.
Technical applications and processes will be demonstrated to highlight the possibilities of this medium, and to achieve the desired expression, or to inject new possibilities into current practice.
The first half of each day will be structured and spent learning and exploring new methods of application. After lunch there will be more unstructured time to start translating some of the material learnt.
This is a supportive, explorative, fun class, where students have the space to work on painting with like-minded people. The class is suitable for beginners, or for those with some basic painting experience, though not necessarily with watercolour.
