START PAINTING WATERCOLOURS
Would you like to start painting in watercolours? Perhaps you simply have no idea know where to start or even which brush you should use, let alone any idea what type of paper you should be painting on or how to apply the paint! If that set of watercolours your kids bought you for Xmas is still in the drawer with the cellophane wrapper on or you haven't painted since school then this course will get you started. The first hour will be spent looking at the materials you need and how to prepare your paper like the professionals do. The second hour will be spent practicing basic techniques and during the third hour we will start you off on your new hobby with a go at some simple painting from photographic images. Complete beginners very welcome!
COLOUR MIXING FOR WATERCOLOURS
This morning is all about learning about the colours in your box. If you are clueless about colour mixing and feel you don’t know enough about your paints come along and learn more. With guidance you will be shown how to make effective colour charts so you really understand what your colours look like with different amounts of water, and what they make when mixed with other colours. Granulation and transparency will be discussed. You will also be given individual advice about any additional ‘missing’ colours that you could do with purchasing, in order to mix a full range of hues. Complete beginners very welcome!
