Watercolour with Bettina Schroder
Bettina’s courses are suitable for all, from absolute beginners to accomplished painters, to make the most of their abilities and to find a more personal approach. The emphasis is on how to capture the initial excitement on first spotting a subject, without getting too bogged down in technicalities. Tuition will be in watercolour mainly but also in other media as required. Daily demonstrations (in - or outdoors) are tailored to the particular needs of the students and to help you to get started. The tuition will also deal with general painting problems such as perspective, choice of colour, composition, shadows and many other tricks of the trade. Particular attention is given to wet-in-wet technique as well as some of the ground rules for beginners. For complete beginners Bettina teaches a simple, easy to follow ‘step by step’ approach. Tuition is normally arranged in day sessions lasting from 10am until 4pm, so there is time for you to relax before dinner and explore the locality. If you are keen to carry on painting, you are welcome to make use of the studio and surroundings. Cost includes all food and drink, accommodation and a mid week excursion by boat. We arrange taxi pick up from the airport.
