Summer Festival - Expressive Watercolour Portraits
Create a colourful, expressive watercolour portrait in bold, free brushstrokes. In this one-day workshop we will explore how to create a loose, colourful portrait using bold, gestural brushstrokes. We will look at painting techniques including wet-into-wet, lifting colour, layering and more. You will have the chance to develop a free and fresh approach to painting watercolour, a dynamic and flexible medium.
Beginning with a group exercise to capture the same face (photo provided by tutor), you will then use these techniques and apply them to create your own chosen portrait.
