Beginner Watercolours with Pat Duwyn ( 4 Weeks)
Time & Location
About the Event
This four-night course is designed for those with no or very little experience in Watercolours. Focus will be on materials (paints, brushes, papers), colour theory and blending, saving “the white”, basic washes and other introductory techniques. At completion, students will be able to lay down a variegated wash, do wet into wet, wet into dry techniques, and have a basic understanding of how “water” makes “watercolours” work.
Students should not purchase any new watercolour materials for this course. A materials kit is available for purchase when you register. (If you currently have watercolour supplies, bring them to the first class.)
