Watercolours are the most versatile of all the mediums. Beautiful light effects and flowing washes are achieved by loose and bold brush strokes and a good knowledge of control of pigment and water. Come along and brush up on your skills using a variety of subjects: mountains, dramatic skies, boats and water, trees and figure. Jacky will cover the three important steps for creating a sense of space: atmospheric and linear perspective and stacking. She will demonstrate techniques step by step and give you plenty of time to practice. Generally you will paint a full painting every day with build up exercises each morning. To make the most of the beautiful landscape there will be an outdoor painting opportunity and for early risers optional sketching before breakfast on some days and a cafe warm up afterward!
The course will suit beginners to experienced.
