Watercolour Landscapes, Direct & Dynamic

Truro Arts Centre, Cornwall, TR1 2SJ
17/05/2020 - 18/05/2020


This two-day, studio-based workshop will be an introduction to painting with watercolour in a loose, impressionistic and bold style. Subjects covered will include coastal scenery, skies, trees, foliage, and more.  We’ll will look at how light, composition and simplification are key in achieving atmosphere and a sense of place.  Core techniques of watercolour will be covered, including the use of hard & soft edges, tonal control and variation in brushwork, to create paintings that have energy and impact.  From the basis of careful observation, we will work through some exercises in interpretation, and towards a complete painting on each day.  Students are encouraged to be bold and ‘take risks’ freely, and not expect masterpieces, but will take away many useful ideas and inspiration to work with in their painting.  All references will be provided.
