Learn Watercolour with Keith Hornblower – The Essentials
Contact course provider
About the Course
Watercolour painting workshop for beginners and improvers at Old Bank Studios, Harwich.
This workshop is part of our Watercolour Wednesdays Special Offer – Book All Six and GET ONE FREE.
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.
This day is aimed at beginners and improvers, but even the more experienced will have something to gain from working with a different artist.
