First steps in Watercolour

FIRST STEPS IN WATERCOLOUR PAINTING
Thursday 30th May 10am – 3pm £30 Booking essential

Watercolour is an exciting and beautiful medium but it has a reputation for being difficult to do well.  Artist and teacher Steven Bramble will lead you through the process of painting a simple object or still-life, covering composition, sketching-in, colour mixing and painting techniques. This will be a ‘hands on’ day but while we’re working Steven will talk about materials, show you how to stretch paper and we’ll look at some of the history of the subject.

This workshop is aimed at beginners but if you already have some experience it will be an opportunity to extend your skill.

Steven has been painting watercolours for over 40 years and has wide experience of teaching it. He has exhibited throughout this time and has work in many private and public collections in this country and abroad.
Please bring your own materials if you have them, particularly paints.  We will have limited materials available for you to use if you don’t have anything.
