One must paint with the outer eye and inner eye, backward and forward, inside out and upside down, sideways, as a metaphysical aeroplane might go. Eileen Agar.


This workshop will explore the dancing, light-filled medium of Watercolour and investigate ways in which we can create dynamic compositions through use of line, colour, texture and form to build rhythm and balance, harnessing both the potential for glowing delicacy and deep expressive power of this fascinating medium.


We will examine examples of paintings that employ the watercolour medium to powerful effect, including artists such as Paul Klee, Frances Hodgkins, Georgia O'Keefe, Eileen Agar, Francesco Clemente, Charles Burchfield and Cecily Brown, discussing their strengths and experimenting with similar painting techniques and approaches.


One of our explorations during the workshop will be using collage techniques as a tool to stimulate visual ideas, allowing the freedom to cut and juxtapose imagery to build our compositions, creating rhythm and structure. 


The workshop is suitable for beginners to watercolour painting and for those who wish to experiment and work further with the medium.
