Simple Watercolours
This is a fun and structured course covering a range of painting exercises to help you grow in confidence. Each week we’ll work on a watercolour study, looking at techniques such as wet-on-wet and dry brushing. You’ll be provided with images to work from, and your tutor will carry out live demonstration during the lesson, so you can paint along at home. As you develop in your confidence and technique, you’ll be encouraged to develop your own style. Prosp User 3

You will need your own set of watercolours (in a range of colours), a palette and round watercolour brushes. You can use a selection of brush sizes - for example a 2, 4 and 6. It is useful to have a larger brush (a 1 inch or bigger) for creating washes and a sponge for wetting your paper. You can use any watercolour paper - A4 is ideal. Please have a ‘spare’ sheet of paper or sketchbook for testing colours and making notes. Prosp User 5

You will receive details and joining instructions on how to access the course by email about 24 hours before the course is due to start. If you enrol later than this, the Zoom code will be emailed to you on the day that your course starts. The Zoom code login and password you receive will be the same for every class this term.
