Improvers Watercolour Painting Workshop
13th January @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Come along for a day of watercolour painting where I will demonstrate a painting and provide printed handouts and photographs for you to follow. During the demonstrations, I explain my process step-by-step and I will show you various techniques and methods for creating different effects with watercolours. I will also provide tips and tricks for using different brushes, paints, and paper.
One of the great things about attending a demonstration is that you can see the techniques being used in real-time and ask questions during the demonstration. You will be able to paint the project with I will give individual guidance and encouragement.
You will produce a finished painting to take home along with notes explaining the techniques used during the workshop. The workshop will start at 10am and we finish at 4pm. I encourage attendees to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the workshop ie 9.45am. This will allow you time to familiarise yourself with the amenities. Meet me and your fellow participants and enjoy a coffee or tea or other light refreshments. All courses are for adults age 18 plus.
You will need to bring paint, watercolour paper (if possible Arches 140lb/300gsm cotton Cold pressed or Rough), brushes, a ceramic palette or an old white plate for mixing colours, a pencil, 2 large jam jars, paper towel, masking tape and if possible an A3 sized board to tape your paper to. Don’t worry if you don’t have a board I will have some spare. Practice paper will be available for free and I will have professional Artists Arches watercolour paper available to buy for £2.50 per sheet (11x15inch 140lb cotton paper). Please bring your own lunch. There are local shops a short 5min walk from the venue (Costa, Co-op etc). Free tea, coffee and biscuits (including gluten free) will be available all day.
The workshop will be held in the large light and airy Wilkinson room at St John’s Church, Hills Road, Cambridge. There is free parking at the rear of the Church which is accessible from Blinco Grove. The Church is a 15min walk from the railway station.
