Mon, 16 Jul 2018 10:00

Monday 16 July 2018 – 10:00 – 16:00 - £50

In this class we will look at how watercolour paints behave, and how they mix together to make an infinite range of new shades and tones. Students will be guided all the way with personal tuition and demonstrations, using a variety of techniques, then we will put it all to the test with a completed painting.

Watercolour may not be the easiest of mediums to master, but the joy of sploshing some paint around is great fun and if all that results in a good painting at the end of it, then that is even better.
