Spring Watercolour En Plein Air, Dedham Hall,16th - 23rd April 2022

Dedham Hall, CO7 6AD
16/04/2022 - 23/04/2022

This course is carefully designed with the ‘serious improver’ in mind, and for those who want to further their practice of painting outdoors.

For students of this demanding medium Jem believes that treating all painting as ‘just practise’ and being willing to take chances (and learn from resulting ‘mistakes’) are key to making good progress.  It’s a direct and bold approach that leads to a  fresh and dynamic outcome – when it comes off!
Subjects will include skies, trees, fields, village and coastal scenery, with the aim to paint outdoors at nearby picturesque locations of Essex and Suffolk, weather permitting.  The focus will be on completing paintings ‘on the spot’, whilst enjoying the process and our surroundings.

Tuition will be through a mix of approaches, including plenty of demonstration, some studio-based ‘technique sessions’ and by occasional reference to renowned greats of the medium.  The underlying principles for successful painting will be addressed and demonstrated continually and students will receive individual guidance according to their needs.

Please note:
Jem’s courses are aimed at those with some experience of watercolour and are less suitable for beginners.  Although the course does include some structured studio time, it doesn’t aim to cover the basic watercolour techniques.
Outdoor locations may include a range of uneven surfaces, including a bit of sand/mud, saltmarsh and damp grass.  Reasonably good mobility and suitable footwear will be necessary.
There will also be car journeys (perhaps of up to 50 mins, max.) to take in fabulous locations.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Jem if you would like to discuss any aspect of the course content in greater detail.  (Email jembowdenwatercolour@gmail.com or telephone 0117 9711735)
