Description

Where does the rainbow go when we try to put it onto the paper? Why do all those lovely colours, that look so bright in our box, turn to mud the moment we set to work? And why are so many watercolours so wishy-washy?

In this practical, one-day course, we look briefly at the science behind the problem and with examples from the Tate’s watercolour collection, explore two different concepts that will help us gain control of our paintbox and put the colour back into our work.
