Jacky Pearson, New Zealand. Watercolour.
Come along and brush up on your watercolour skills. Watercolour is the best medium to produce beautiful glowing light effects. Jacky will show you how to produce flowing washes, where to have blurry edges, delicate and bold brush strokes. Watercolours are the most versatile of all the mediums and a good knowledge of pigment and water balance is essential and will be the theme of the course.
We will paint a variety of subjects: landscape, skies, buildings, boats and water, trees and an easy portrait. Jacky will cover the three important steps for creating a sense of space: atmospheric, 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 before breakfast on some days and a cafe warm up afterward!
The course will suit beginners, intermediate and experienced.
