Wanting to expand the range and depth of your watercolour painting techniques and practice?  Then this intensive 2 Day masterclass is for you. 

Bring your ambitions and difficulties : perhaps you are wanting to paint larger works, or to move towards the abstract, or to sketch more effectively, to work with mixed media (gouache, drawing and watercolour) or simply to make looser works and be shaken from your comfort zone! Bring existing or new projects and images that you would like to paint, and Tanya will guide you through group and individual tuition.

Day 1 begins with hands-on exercises practising the essentials of effective composition, colour palette organisation and a full range of watercolour techniques, both traditional and contemporary. Students will look at the best ways to approach a watercolour painting, through effective underwashes and precise drawing. Students will be challenged to try techniques beyond their usual comfort zone, and will expand their knowledge and use of contemporary surfaces, papers and pigments for watercolour. Students will consider ideas of simplification and how to make more imaginative and expressive watercolours. Day 2 will be spent on completing painting(s) started in Day 1, with Tanya working one-on-one with students.

This workshop is suitable for those artists with some experience in watercolour painting. It is not suitable for beginners to watercolour painting.
