Watercolour is a most beautiful transparent medium, clean and green,
it's also atmospheric, full of surprises and challenges.
My classes are designed to introduce and guide beginners through to
experienced level students in mastering preparatory drawings and
the magic of watercolour.
Our focus is on developing your own style whilst trying out watercolour techniques.
Each session starts with a technique or design theory for you to play with and
incorporate into your own art practice. Some terms we focus on
particular elements, styles or subject to experiment with.
My classes are mostly mixed levels of painters.
Bring your own subject matter with all your resources and workings and
your preferred table easel.
sketchbook and spare watercolour paper essential for every class!
