Class Description:

Painting with watercolours is relaxing, enjoyable and not difficult. Watercolour painting is also currently enjoying a surge in popularity. This course is for the absolute beginner, and is taught in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. You will begin with an overview of the basic painting materials, followed by instruction in basic techniques, composition, and colour theory. You will learn brush strokes, colour mixing, wet on dry and wet on wet techniques, and about staining and non-staining colours, and creating hard and soft edges. You will also learn how to fix mistakes. You will practice landscapes and florals and create several paintings.
