Watercolours are the most exciting and versatile of all the mediums. Beautiful light effects and flowing washes are achieved by loose and bold brush strokes and a good knowledge of control of pigment and water. Come along, have fun and brush up on your skills using a variety of subjects: mountains, dramatic skies, boats and water, trees and figures. Jacky will cover the three essential steps for creating a sense of space: atmospheric and linear perspective and stacking. She will demonstrate techniques step by step and give you plenty of time to practice. Generally, you will paint a full painting every day with build-up exercises each morning. To make the most of the beautiful landscape there will be an outdoor painting opportunity and for early risers optional sketching/painting by the river before breakfast on some days and a cafe afterward! Open to all comers 18 years and over
