This day long session offers a chance to examine the process of watercolour painting in the studio.
Long associated with observational painting, watercolour offers the artist a wide-range of possibilities. With a myriad of choices to be made from surfaces and paints to brushes, not to mention source material (drawings, sketches, studies, photographs), which work best? What can we learn from the art of the past? When is a watercolour painting finished?
The day will take a stage by stage approach to making a painting, in an attempt to answer some of these fundamental problems and aim to produce a watercolour painting in the studio.
All experience levels welcome.
