About the Course

This advanced watercolour workshop is especially for those already working in the medium, but who are seeking to develop new ideas and methods.

Keith’s approach to watercolour is lively and entertaining, de-mystifying the medium and dispelling the fear of white paper. He will talk about colour theory and how to simplify it, perspective, composition etc., but most importantly tone, or value, to make a painting burst with light. These are the essentials of watercolour painting.

About the Artist
He has worked extensively with architects for over 20 years as an architectural illustrator and is a Fellow of the Society of Architectural Illustration.

Away from illustration, his watercolours are now in high demand and appear in private collections worldwide, and his subject range has expanded to include everything from landscapes/streetscapes to flower paintings.

He is also an official demonstrator for Winsor & Newton.
