This course is for all levels from beginners to advanced. Students will learn a variety of different watercolour techniques. The tutor will meet each individual student at whatever level they are at. Students will have the option of working from their own set ups at home or working from images the tutor shares . The tutor will give general class demonstrations which will include slide presentations, more advanced students can carry on with their own work although they may find it helpful to go over the basic techniques again. The course is fairly structured starting with tonal paintings in the first two weeks before learning basic colour theory. More experienced students who feel that they already know colour theory will be set different exercises to do.
The tutor will encourage you to work from observation whilst also exploring other artists’ work whilst developing fundamental tonal skills.
The tutor strongly recommends completing a beginners drawing course or having basic drawing skills before signing up for this course.
