 Introduction to Watercolours

Introduction to Watercolours

Details

This lovely day looks in depth at colours, colours mixing techniques, washes, shading and brush techniques. It is the most useful place to start for those wishing to learn the basics in an enjoyable, thorough day of discovering the world of watercolours.

Even those with considerable experience say they learn a lot from this class. If you are new to painting and would like to start somewhere - we can highly recommend Margaret Jarvis, an outstanding local tutor for Beginners and Improvers; Margaret comes with a wealth of knowledge and confirms that you don't need to be able to 'draw' to paint with watercolours, it's all about technique but even those with considerable experience say they learn a lot from this class.

Incls a lovely 2 course Aga lunch and all refreshments.
