Welcome to the world of watercolour. You can be a complete beginner or maybe you’ve got some prior painting experience. This class will teach you the practical skills and techniques used in watercolour painting.

You will learn about the specific properties of watercolour paint, and develop practical skills and techniques in paint application, brush-work, colour mixing, rendering light and shade, tonal value, and design in watercolour painting.

By the end of the class, everyone will have completed one of their own watercolour paintings, and be able to take their new skills to continue developing their own style, in this particular medium.
