Watercolour Painting

Martin Kelly
Monday 2.00 - 4.00pm

This course will take place on Zoom.

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 choice. The course concentrates on watercolour painting, but also includes a bit of line drawing, proportional measured drawing and perspective. Students will be introduced to various watercolour techniques such as wet on wet, mixing colours on the paper, wet onto dry, catching the tooth of the paper, scumbling, spattering, use of a rigger and feather, use of masking fluid, etc.

You can work on still lives, flowers or from photographs. I also have a wide range of watercolour images in a variety of styles, and I demonstrate the various techniques involved as and when required. All levels of experience are welcome, from beginners to the more proficient.

All the techniques have been taught very successfully via Zoom over the summer, 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.
