Painting buildings in line and watercolour

Painting buildings in line and watercolour


In this brand new workshop Janina will lead you through all the steps involved in painting a building in pen line and watercolour wash. Janina will guide you through the process for creating your own painting including simple skies, using masking fluid, variegated watercolour washes, looking for details and adding texture. The workshop will include a discussion about watercolour paint selection and colour mixing.

What to bring:

A packed lunch

Watercolour paint - blue (phthalo or cobalt or ultramarine), yellow ochre, Payne’s grey, burnt sienna, sap green

Watercolour paper – for example Cass Art A4 hot pressed (HP) smooth 300gsm. You will need a sheet for the painting and another for testing colours and masking fluid. If you use thinner paper you will need to stretch the one for the painting before the workshop.
