This workshop introduces students to the basic techniques of watercolour painting and is suitable for people totally new to watercolours or for those who haven’t painted for a long time.
In the morning we will discuss materials, paper, paint and brushes and then with small exercises, practice techniques that will help students to familiarise themselves with the properties of watercolour.
In the afternoon we’ll put all the exercises and information into practice and produce a small painting in which students will learn how to plan their painting, brush technique and colour mixing.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation.
