Introduction to Watercolours
Have you ever thought of painting with watercolours but don’t know what to do? Then this is the course for you. Aimed at complete beginners, I start with all the basics so that you can paint with confidence. Passing on some of the tricks of the trade I will show you what materials are available, what is a good buy and what is not, how the materials work then with practical demonstrations and exercises show you how to do all the basic washes; flat, graded and variegated, how to correct mistakes, how to build up a simple picture and by the end of the course you will be able to handle your materials with a lot of confidence as well as having produced finished paintings.
There will be an additional cost of £15 for materials payable to the tutor on arrival.
Residential Fees From: £338. Non Residential: £266
Clare DuVergier is a well-known painter in the South West and lives in a remote area in the Quantock Hills. She trained both as an actress and as a teacher and her first job at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter instilled a great love of the local landscape. In 1990 having followed a number of career paths she returned to the South West and to a full time career in painting in 2000. She has exhibited at a number of galleries in the South West and Scotland and for many years as part of SAW (Somerset Art Week). She is now much in demand as a lively teacher of traditional watercolour. She works primarily with watercolour and occasionally in oils and mixed media. Her paintings are diverse and include both figurative and abstract works with a particular interest in colour and light.
