This weekend course is for anyone who has attended a beginners course, or painted with watercolours before, and feels in need of new inspiration to be able to make more progress. Everyone can expect to get fresh ideas on how to see and apply watercolour simply. Tuition will be through a mixture of demonstrations and individual guidance, according to your prior experience. The aim of the demonstrations will to be to show how the unique and elusive properties of watercolour - transparency and freshness - can be achieved. Subjects will be suggested both outdoors and in the studio, according to the weather. The course will include plenty of practical work, concentrating on analysing and simplifying the subject in a visual way. All the basic technical information will also be covered, but the emphasis will be on painting fresh and lively watercolours, using the most direct methods possible with the simplest of materials.

Andrew Pitt has had many one-man exhibitions and is an experienced tutor and demonstrator. He frequently runs painting workshops for art societies and is also a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter magazine. This is his eleventh consecutive season as an Associate Tutor at Flatford Mill. Please take a few moments to look at his own work at: www.andrewpitt.co.uk
