Introducing or Refreshing Techniques in Watercolour Morning

Emily Jolley

You may have a box of watercolours in your possession but have never used them. This is the time to have a go. Emily will demonstrates traditional and experimental methods that you will apply to different genres, still life and landscape. Through experimenting with the medium you will start to gain confidence in working with colour and creating your own colour palettes.

By the end of the course you will have learnt how to:

  • Apply a variety of washes (flat, graduating and variegated)
  • Layer colour wet in wet and when dry
  • Experiment with textures using masking fluid, wax and clingfilm
  • Mix and layer colour

This course is suitable for beginners as well as students who are working at an intermediate level. This course will help you to learn new techniques, enjoy, experiment and have fun with this versatile medium.

We also have an evening class available here.

* No class on 25 October.
