This intermediate-level watercolour painting course offers the opportunity to further develop watercolour skills with a variety of hands-on and digital tools & techniques. Helen will lead you through exploring the importance of value and offer some unique ways to create amazing depth and effects with a variety of paint approaches and applications.
During your time together you will explore controlled wet-on-wet washes, the joy of colour mingling, value studies, underpainting, digital tools including posterization/notan, and masking compounds – the good, the bad and the ugly. Learn and try poured watercolour painting and negative painting. Learn about techniques to remove paint to create soft effects or remove an oopsie.
You will also take the opportunity to experience the nature of beautiful St. Andrews by painting a Plein Air image.
The workshop will consist of demonstrations and exercises providing the opportunity to create a piece from each days learning. Participants will also have the opportunity to work on a painting of their choice.
