Join local artist Lou Davis for a relaxing painting session. Lou uses watercolour to create simple and approachable patterns that allow you to get acquainted with this medium in a way that helps you focus, shut out the outside world and simply create. In this workshop, we’ll paint three watercolour projects, learning to use the paints to create a number of effects, we’ll learn how to mix and blend colours on the palette or on the page, and we’ll embellish our paintings with details in pen and with gold watercolour. This workshop is perfect if you’re new to watercolour and offers a really beautiful way to explore the medium, it’s also good if you’re experienced in watercolour and are interested in using your painting and drawing time to relax and de-stress.
