This 5-week online course introduces you to the essential materials, methods and techniques of watercolour painting. You will learn fundamental artistic concepts about colour, light, form and texture, as well as being introduced to various watercolour techniques.

Starting with sketching, dry-brush techniques and the application of different washes, you will then be shown how to approach tone and form. You will also learn how to set up your palette and capture colour, light and transparency. I will explain what materials are best to work with and demonstrate how to use them. Students will receive individual critiques and practical advice at all stages of their watercolour painting process.

We will look at Old Master water-media paintings to gain inspiration, not only because their work is beautiful, but also to gain insight into how they executed more complicated techniques.
