Painting for beginners – one step further
This series of workshops, which runs over three consecutive Fridays, is designed for students who have had an initial introduction to watercolour and who want to take the next step. It’s aim is to build the confidence of the emerging artist in painting landscapes, flowers or still life, looking particularly at painting skies, water and managing backgrounds. With a greater understanding of how watercolours work, students will be encouraged to experiment with different watercolour mediums and one to one help will be a priority.
