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.
