Letting go of watercolour @ Bullclough Art School


About the Course

Letting Go With Watercolours
2 day watercolour painting workshop

TUTOR: Jackie White (From: SKY TV Landscape Artist of the Year!)
5 star course lunch and unlimited materials provided

We are very lucky to have Jackie White from SKY TV's 'Landscape Artist of the Year' show, tutoring at Bullclough!

This stunning course is aimed at students who already have a knowledge of watercolour painting, but are looking to explore further ways to develop their style and techniques. You will be exploring mark making using a variety of tools and processes and experimenting with various watercolour mediums to enhance the colours. With the use of glazing or retarders to control the flow we will experiment with different applications to produce exciting effects.  By exploring the surface of the paper, resist methods and interpretation of the subject matter, we will work towards a final outcome.

This two day workshop promises to be transformative to your watercolour journey.

Did this course plus a couple of others this year (2019).
Tutor: Maggie is an amazing tutor and very generous about sharing her tremendous knowledge and experience with attendees. She gave plentiful, individual feedback which highlighted what was good and what needed improving in our work.
Location: Gorgeous place just outside hamlet of Ford, near Leek. Surrounded by rolling hills so painting/drawing inspiration on all sides.
Facilities: Purpose built studio stacked with boards, paints, brushes, easels, etc. Good for beginners as, because the school are generous with materials, dont worry about going wrong, spoiling paper, etc.
All in all a fabulous course in a fabulous place which I highly recommend and will be going back to in 2020.

A great course for anyone who has already done the beginners guide to watercolour, or simply wants to develop their skills and techniques. Jackie was a great tutor who kept us all motivated throughout the 2 days with her wealth of experience and infectious laughter! The venue is stunning, great facilities, good food, and fellow students all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I can not recommend this course enough and am already looking forward to the next level.
