Loosening up with Watercolours-Improvers level

Watercolour demo piece


A fantastic opportunity for those of you who want to loosen up, experiment, learn new skills and want to absorb yourself for 2 days in a creative environment. Kate will be passing on tips and tricks to help you move away from convention and to experiment more with this versatile medium.
Deemed to be one of Kate’s most popular courses because let’s face it, underneath it all we all like to have a bit of fun splattering paint about and experimenting. Wildly pushing the boundaries of conventional watercolours this course isn’t for the faint-hearted or illustrative types.
Day 1- We will explore a wealth of different approaches and surfaces to inspire creativity on a new level. Experimentation and special effects will be key. We will also be considering scale, composition and presentation.
Day 2 -We will be looking at Landscapes and Seascapes -You will be encouraged to bring along your own personality, style and subject preferences to the second day or you can continue with themes from day 1.
Your aim for the end of the 2 days?…less on the lines of finished paintings, more on the lines of a scrap book full of ideas ,studies and paintings in progress.
Cost for 2 days inc 2 lunches and refreshments .
Materials can be hired.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
