Watercolour for Beginners
Enjoy an introduction to watercolour painting over eight 2.5 hour sessions.
Your tutor, Emily Mulvihill will lead you through the foundation skills of watercolour, introducing you to the colour wheel, helping you understand tonal values and the importance of letting go and allowing the medium to flow.
Gain confidence in this challenging medium by learning how to:
- Stretch paper and prepare the surface
- Sketch a foundation drawing
- Achieve seamless washes
- Apply hard and soft edges
- Minimise brush strokes and avoid overworking the page
Emily will step you through the different surfaces, materials, tools and techniques commonly used in watercolours, including paper types, brushes, knives, scraping and splatter tools, salt, masking fluid and white gouache.
After 8 weeks in the studio, Emily will have you enjoying the spontaneity of this medium, and the freshness that comes from the mingling of colours and washes.
