Watercolour is often described as ‘difficult’ to handle. This is because its success relies on following certain principals, such as how pigments react to water at different stages of ‘the water cycle’ as well as techniques, brushes and types of paper.
Often people have tried watercolour at school or were given a box of paints as a gift and have varying degrees of success or difficulty using watercolour as, basically, coloured water. However there is a lot more to watercolour than dilution.
If you already have some experience with watercolour but want to take it further, these classes are also suitable as numbers are small and therefore I can respond to your individual requirements.
The first day is suggested for complete beginners, but I will see who books and what they want. The emphasis in these classes is on improving techniques, so if anyone wants to work on an individual project, that is fine, but I will also have plenty of experiments and demos for those who want to try out a range of watercolour techniques and understand the behaviour of those tricksy pigments.
Please book early as I only have four people per group. Classes take place in my New Brighton studio, address provided on booking. Bring your own materials, or use materials provided for an additional £5. There are also some materials to try at no extra charge e.g. different types of brushes, resist medium, etc. Water and containers are, as always, provided! NB if you are allergic to cats, please bear in mind I have two who make occasional visits into the studio.
Cost: £25 per session.
Discounts: two days £45 three days £65, also discount if you bring a friend or family member – please enquire.
