Master Watercolour in Three Centuries

X

Description

In this practical, one day course, we study three watercolours from the Tate archive (one from the eighteenth century, one from the nineteenth and one from the twentieth) that exemplify three key principles of watercolour practise that will help you to master the artist’s most accessible yet challenging medium. Some previous experience with watercolours will be useful. Ideal for anyone who has a desire to improve their watercolour technique or to learn more about the history of the subject.
