About the Course
This is a workshop that will show you how to paint landscapes using watercolour with different skills and techniques. Using photos supplied by your tutor you will be shown how to paint traditional landscapes and much looser impressionistic landscapes using techniques such as wet in wet, lifting off and layering. Other skills taught include colour mixing, using a limited palette, how to paint trees and skies and how to use different brush marks. Each exercise will be demonstrated step by step in a relaxed and friendly manner. By the end of the afternoon you will have produced a couple of paintings. Ideal for beginners and students with some knowledge of the medium.
