Björn Bernström workshop: Painting loose watercolours with light
18th May @ 10:00 am - 19th May @ 4:30 pm
Two day workshop learning to capture light in a beautiful dramatic Nordic style of watercolour painting.
Björn Bernström is considered one of the Nordic countries’ foremost contemporary watercolour painters and a sought-after workshop instructor. He has tutored courses for 15 years in the Nordics, Europe, Australia and North America. Björn’s painting style can be described as relaxed and rich in contrast, with a harmonious colour scale and unique choice of motifs.
Björn will demonstrate many of his unique watercolor techniques suitable for landscape painting. We get to see a flowing painting with lots of pigment and water to create dramatic skies and loose landscapes in juicy colors. Björn will demonstrate two watercolors per day. These will show how he paints motifs with water. He also shows how to highlight the light in your painting. The goal of the course is for you to be inspired and develop a more relaxed painting style. Björn’s style is loose and expressive.
