This special one off Beginner's Watercolours Workshop is taught by illustrator Emma Block at Applaud Coffee, in Suffolk. The workshop will focus on developing skills and applying techniques allowing you to grow in confidence and start to develop your own style. The workshop will start with a colour mixing demonstration allowing you to become familiar with the paint and different effects that can be created. Then you'll learn how simple brush strokes can be used to create leaves, flowers and stems and how these can be ranged to create floral motifs.
*Materials to use during the class will be provided, including guide sheets, paper, brushes and watercolour paint. A hot drink and a slice of delicious homemake cake is also included.
* We'll start with colour theory, colour mixing and exercises to practice making simple shapes and brush strokes.
* You'll then work on a final piece, sketching and painting from life, with plenty of hands on guidance and encouragement from the tutor. By the end of the workshop you'll be well on your way to developing your own unique watercolour style.
