This watercolour workshop will feature a classic still-life of rusty and dusty metal objects. Observation skills will be stressed and flat-angled brushes will be used. A series of exercises will culminate with a large sustained watercolour. Sound process, colour, composition and brush-handling skills will be presented and discussed. Some prior watercolour experience is suggested. Barry Coombs is a very experienced watercolour artist and educator. You can see his work at www.barrycoombs.ca.
