Watercolour Painting

Martin Kelly
Mondays 2.00 - 4.00pm

This course is for anyone wishing to learn or improve their watercolour painting skills.  All levels of experience are welcome, from beginners to the more experienced.

Students will work at their own pace on subjects of their choosing. The course concentrates on watercolour painting, but also includes a bit of line drawing, proportional measured drawing, colour theory and perspective, when relevant. Students will be introduced to various watercolour techniques such as: wet on wet, layering, mixing colours on the paper, catching the tooth of the paper, scumbling, spattering, scratching out, use of a liner brush, sponge, and a feather, use of masking fluid, sandpaper, cling film and salt.

You can work on still lifes, flowers or from photographs.  I also have a wide range of watercolour images by many different artists in a variety of styles, and I demonstrate the various techniques involved as and when required.

All the techniques have been taught very successfully via Zoom during the pandemic, and the student feedback has been excellent. Students can show their work to the tutor, and each other, and get comments and suggestions. The tutor can demonstrate techniques, and students try them out in their own home during the zoom session.
