Monday 27th July to Friday 31st July

Learn how to compose abstract watercolours directly from your immediate environment. Structured drawing and painting exercises will show you how to rapidly record the abstract bones of a composition, using the school as starting points. Short technical demonstrations about working from observation to abstraction, maximising colour impact, loosening up, and watercolour's unique handling will facilitate your work, whilst reference to artists, e.g. Richard Diebenkorn, Patrick Heron, Giorgio Morandi, will give you broad principles and lots of ideas. The course is suitable for beginners, rusty returners and experienced painters. Wherever you're starting from, this course will enable some abstract manoeuvres.
You'll receive a list of materials/equipment to bring, and watercolour paper and boards will be available to buy.
