CREATIVE VIBRANT WATERCOLOURS Jacky Pearson, New Zealand Watercolourist

Let’s have fun throwing watercolour paint and water around for this five day workshop. Watercolours are the most versatile of all the mediums. Learn some of the techniques needed for lovely glowing watercolours; loosen up those brush strokes, create gorgeous washes, add details as you go. Throughout the week we will be focusing on the effects of light and shadow on our subject matter. Light is said to be the fundamental reason for painting a subject but getting the components of form and cast shadow right is going to give your painting that extra lift.

SKETCHING AND WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Malcolm Carver Architect ARAIA RIBA AWI

ONLY ONE VACANCY REMAINING.

Imagine this scenario: a feeling of despondency starting the week saying ‘I can’t draw to save my life’…..or ‘I wasn’t born with this skill’ … to the sense of achievement, fulfillment and exhilaration by the end of the week when you discover that you actually can. Most students just need encouragement. The workshop is open to all, both beginners and those with previous experience.
