This course is designed for those with some experience of painting in watercolour who may be somewhat frustrated with their attempts to achieve fresh and lively results. Demonstrations will include a review of the essential elements of working with pure watercolour and an introduction to line and wash techniques. Particular attention will be given to the importance of composition, simplification of a subject and creating correct tonal values. Weather permitting, we will work outdoors as much as possible.

Bring a friend!
