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!




During this short course we will be looking at (and practising) Watercolour techniques specifically for landscapes. Starting with how to sketch and layout a landscape with good composition, then moving on to painting techniques. We will look at skies, including sunsets and clouds of different types, water in the landscape, trees, structures and foregrounds. Several useful mixed media techniques will be demonstrated enabling you to approach your watercolour landscapes with new confidence. Perspective and colour mixing will also be discussed, as well as how to avoid muddy colours and how to work in a limited palette – without limiting your colour choice.
