The workshop will focus on developing skills and applying techniques allowing you to grow in confidence and start to develop your own style. This workshop is appropriate for both total beginners and those with some watercolour experience.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.

*You will be given a complete set of materials which you can take away after class, including guide sheets, paper, brushes and a set of Windsor and Newton watercolours.

* 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.
