Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August

Suitable for beginners and painters with some experience, this course represents an in depth look at all the major watercolour techniques such as washes, blending, wet into wet, dry brush, brush drawing and many more. All techniques will be demonstrated and their uses and applications explained. Later in the course we will look at some 'special effect' techniques such as sponging, salt repel and spattering then gradually move towards putting all these skills into producing loose, lively and original paintings.
A basic equipment list will be provided and there will be guidance about further materials during the course.
