The watercolour landscapes of Eric Ravilious are admired, not only for their clarity, composition and design, but also for their captivating, otherworldly light. How did he achieve it?

In this one day course, we study the technique of this singular twentieth century artist, discover a little more about the importance of composition and design in our work and learn how to create texture, describe contour and evoke atmosphere like a twentieth century master.
