Service Description

Watercolour Continued In this 8 week course we refresh and build on the basic watercolour methods and experiment with more advanced techniques, such as painting ‘wet-on-wet’. You will have tutor demonstrations and class exercises, looking objectively at found objects and still life and combining watercolour with graphite pencil drawing. We will take on some more complex subjects, such as buildings, animals and even portraiture, using 20th Century masterpieces in watercolour for inspiration and guidance.
