Contemporary watercolour | 7 weeks
For: Beginners and advanced
Watercolour is a fun and flexible medium with many contemporary applications like allowing the water-based medium to ‘take over’ and leading you into unexpected places. Learn how to use the materials on their own and with other mediums such as pencil, ink and masking fluid.
You will learn the process of creating a watercolour painting and explore the use of the watercolour palette - which brushes, how much water and what washes to start with, as well as learning new techniques using other mediums.
Stefan will teach you how you can approach your subjects in different styles. From realistic work to abstract and in between, to find the style of painting you enjoy. Nearly every week you will finish a painting as Stefan takes you step by step through the process of starting a painting and also learning how to finish one.
Learn and enjoy observing your subjects and how to use watercolour. Learn also to think "outside the box", as we don't just use brushes but experiment with other materials as well.
Other areas of focus will include materials, drawing, shading, watercolour painting and brush techniques, along with helping to develop and hone your observational skills.
