You will enjoy the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolour, with colours that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint. This workshop will teach you some worthwhile fundamentals of watercolour painting as well as introduce new and exciting techniques and colours. Not to worry about your level of watercolour painting, this workshop will open up the water media world. . . cool staining, dripping, granulation techniques, drawing with watercolour and more.
