Watercolour basics

by Mary-Anne Bartlett on March 13, 2018

Watercolours are a delight to use and incredibly versatile, but it’s easy to get discouraged when you first try them as they have a reputation for being difficult. All you need is a bit of help and encouragement!

Join Claudia Myatt for a one day workshop full of techniques aimed at beginners as well as those who’ve had a bit of experience with watercolours but feel a bit stuck and uninspired. Subjects we’ll cover include:

– Trying out different materials – the importance of a good choice of paper.

– Basic watercolour techniques – how to get colours to flow, when to work wet and when to work dry.

– Colour mixing – how to stop your palette turning to sludge

– From bold and loose to gentle and delicate – finding your style

– Line and wash

– Sketching and painting – how to choose and approach a subject

These workshops take place in Art Safari’s riverside studio, where there is a wealth of material to be seen from the balcony and around the quayside.  To help you prepare we provide a short list of suggested art materials to bring with you. 

A light lunch and refreshments are provided.

Cost:  £70, including lunch and refreshments

Must be pre-booked on 01394 382235 or info@artsafari.co.uk
