Course Details

Learn the core techniques of watercolour and create images of landscapes, still life, and people in the landscape.
Watercolour is all about control of the water on the brush, the pigment in your palette and the dampness of the paper. Only practice will guarantee good control of these elements. To make that practice fun we will use vibrant colours and make beautiful edges and washes to build up the colours. Explore the wet into wet techniques making big wet areas in your paintings.

This course is suitable for watercolour beginners and those developing their skills.

We provide the basic materials, or you can bring your own watercolour paints, palette, brushes, and ten sheets of A4 sheets of 300gsm watercolour rough paper.
One hour lunch - bring a packed lunch to enjoy in our historic house or explore the local Wellington cafes.
