What is Watercolour Painting?

Watercolour is the process of painting with pigments that are mixed with water. It’s well-known for soft hues and bleeding shades, while it’s fluid nature lends well to dream-like scenes and landscapes. With time and practice, an artist will come to understand the watercolour palette. They’ll know how to balance control and freedom in their work, using specific techniques for mesmerising effect.

What to expect

This course is a no-pressure introduction to the medium of watercolour paint. Whether you are brand new to art or have years of experience, you’ll feel welcome in this warm and happy environment. Each week our experienced tutor will teach you step-by-step the many watercolour techniques, these include:

– Dry washes
– Wet-on-dry
– Wet-on-wet

With the correct guidance, watercolour is easy to learn and in a relatively short time you can take home a painting you’re proud of! This is an enjoyable class where you’ll be encouraged to ‘play’, create and to explore art as you improve your skills.
