Watercolour Courses

A very popular course with materials a little lighter to carry on the aeroplane, watercolour lends its self nicely to loose quick sketching as well as highly detailed work. It is ideal for both beginners and more advanced painters and can be used for any subject, especially to capture on the spot impressions and spontaneous interpretations.

A watercolour week might not only include watercolour painting but as required a variety of other media, ranging from coloured pencil, graphite, pastel and charcoal to pen and ink. From a series of sketches done on location you will look at ways of interpreting these to develop ideas for composition and use of colour in the finished painting. The emphasis in both sketching and painting, will be on gaining skills and confidence in techniques and finding your own, personal approach.

Unlike oil or acrylic painting, where the paints essentially stay where they are put and dry more or less in the form they are applied, water is an active and complex partner in the watercolour painting process, changing both the absorbency and shape of the paper when it is wet and the outlines and appearance of the paint as it dries.
