About the Course

“What’s drawing and painting? I’d use a hammer and chisel if I had to.”Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980)
Conventional watercolour wisdom has it that the best way to get paint onto paper is with a brush – and as a consequence, watercolour artists have been floundering over their flat washes, struggling with unwanted streaks and despairing over their dull colours for centuries. In this one day course, we look at an alternative approach to landscape painting that will not only loosen us up, but give our paintings the atmosphere and authority we’ve always wanted.

All-comers welcome.
