A45 - Basic Watercolour
Sun Oct 22 - Dec 17 (no class Nov 26)

Time: 1 - 4pm

(8 classes)

Leave your inhibitions at home and come out and experience the latest in watercolour painting. We strip the watercolour painting process down to its bare essentials. By using only the primary colours (red, yellow and blue), one paint brush and a palette you will produce a colour chart, rendering the primary, secondary and tertiary colours. Using an unorthodox method of charting colours you will discover how easy it is to mix the colours perfectly every time. One still life study will be completed in the workshop.
