Have you ever thought of painting with watercolours but don’t know what to do? Then this is the course for you. Aimed at complete beginners, I start with all the basics so that you can paint with confidence. Passing on some of the tricks of the trade I will show you what materials are available, what is a good buy and what is not, how the materials work then with practical demonstrations and exercises show you how to do all the basic washes; flat, graded and variegated, how to correct mistakes, how to build up a simple picture and by the end of the course you will be able to handle your materials with a lot of confidence as well as having produced finished paintings.

There will be an additional cost of £10 for materials payable to the tutor on arrival.
