‘Landscape and coastal scenes in watercolour: Seeing, interpreting & painting’

This is a full day workshop.

Jem will explain his process of ‘seeing, interpreting and then painting in watercolour’.
The day will begin with a look at examples of paintings and references to make some important points regarding observation, interpretation and what helps to make successful paintings.
This will be followed by a full demonstration painting with explanation of the whole process, materials and techniques.
Students will then, under guidance, develop a Coastal and in the afternoon (following a second demonstratiion) a Landscape subject into a painting of their own.
A selection of subject references will be provided in case painters wish to use those, OR they can work from their own.
For the latter, students should bring a range to choose from with Jem’s assistance. Good subject selection is paramount if you are to produce a successful painting from it. As a very basic guide, references should have depth (from foreground to distance) and a focal point (or points).
A recommended materials list will be provided in advance of the workshop.
