21 Nov – 19 Dec WED - Watercolour and Ink 5 WEEK Course

This course will give you a fantastic opportunity to delve into the technique admired by a number of artists, such as John Piper, Picasso, Andy Warhol, Ptolemy Dean and many other illustrators and designers. You will learn through exploratory investigation, play and the introduction of specific approaches when using shapes, colours, lines and textures. You will develop work ranging from decorative and abstract to representational and realistic, creating short and long studies. Teaching is informal and encouraging.

You will work from observation and your own photos/sketches, alternatively imagery will be provided as a starting point. A hands on experience of Watercolour and Ink technique will allow you to experiment with colour, quality of line and composition, enabling you to expand upon your own powers of artistic self-expression.

Over the 5 sessions you will:

  • Dive into experimental mark making and sketching with a variety of tools;

  • Indulge into using fine lines with watercolour – central theme is ‘Cities/ Buildings’;

  • Create a mood and spectacular atmosphere through Monochromatic landscapes;

  • Discover the advantages of permanent and impermanent ink;

  • Working from observation and from your imagination.

This course will suit a beginner as well as an experienced practitioner as it will explore and widen the boarders of watercolour painting.
