Watercolours for Beginners - part one (2 half-day workshops)

  • Yardley Arts, The Old School Hall The Square, Yardley Hastings Northampton, England, NN7 1EU United Kingdom (map)

Have you always wanted to paint in watercolours? Are you keen but terrified? Then this is the course for you, led by Chris Richbell and back by popular demand. Together you will demystify the technical terms and classical techniques of watercolour painting. You will play with colour mixing and find surprising combinations of colours which are useful for your landscape experiments. By the end of the second half day you will have produced a small landscape painting and a seascape to be proud of!  You will also be able to use your new equipment to continue painting at home.

Chris is a very experienced teacher and practitioner. She is friendly and relaxed, and aims to increase your confidence in your work and your ability.


Equipment provided: paints, brush, watercolour paper, and specially written course booklet. We recommend you also wear an old shirt or apron over your clothes (or old clothes).
