Simple Watercolours
This is a fun and structured watercolour course covering a range of painting exercises to help you grow in confidence. You will be guided through how to mix colours, how to layer colours and how to get different effects with your paints. You will be sent a range of reference images that we will work from, and your tutor will give live demonstrations during the class that you can paint along with at home. As you grow in confidence, you can then experiment and start to explore your own ideas further and develop your own style. Prosp User 3
This is suitable for those of you who have never painted with watercolour before and also learners who want to refresh their skills by following a structured course. Prosp User 4
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
