A fantastic day spent learning numerous watercolour techniques.
After coffee/tea and introductions, the morning is spent experimenting with various watercolour techniques; wet in wet, wet on dry, creating highlights, masking fluid, creating blooms, textures & effects.
We paint a cow on watercolour paper step by step using the techniques covered.
In the afternoon you will have the opportunity to put into practice the skills covered in the morning with plenty of guidance.
You can paint a hen or hens depending on your preference ( or another cow) with continuing guidance or you can work individually.
The workshop is in my beautiful garden studio. The maximum number is 6 which creates a lovely atmosphere and allows for plenty of 1-1 tuition and social distancing. Previous clients have equated their experiences of a workshop to a spa day.

My husband and I were warmly met by Amina and over a cup of coffee we chatted telling Amina it was over 40 years ago since I had picked up a paint brush (O level Art) and Neil only painted the walls at home! The studio has lots of natural light and is perfect for painting! The room was set up ready for us and other participants with all the materials we needed for the day. We were shown some watercolour painting techniques by Amina who explained as she went along but was more than happy for any questions from us and then we had a go ourselves! We then went onto painting a kingfisher using what we’d learnt but Amina was completely on hand to assist us whilst also making more coffees for us. After our relaxed lunch we were keen to start on the hare and had free reign, again with Amina on hand. It was so relaxing; I honestly don’t think we’ve stayed sat down like that for years! We couldn’t believe how quickly the time went and we had to get back on the road, with our “master pieces”. We’d love to return but as we’re from Wales it’s a long way to go back. However, we do plan to visit the area again and when we do, we’ll definitely book another class. We’d recommend the class to anyone and everyone from beginners onwards as we felt comfortable and the tuition was at our pace. Thanks for a lovely time. Neil & Karyn
Response from A.S.K Art & design ( Studio & Gallery):It was an absolute pleasure to meet Karyn and Neil. They were very open and willing to experiment with watercolour even though they hadn’t painted for a long time. The paintings they completed were beautiful and showed a real understanding of watercolour painting.
