Course description


This is a one day workshop that will show you how to paint autumn fruit with watercolour and pencil on smooth watercolour paper. During the day you will be shown how paint the basic colours of the fruit with watercolour and then use the pencils to produce texture and details. By the end of the day you will have produced one painting.

‘Not’ refers to the surface texture of the paper and is also known as CP (cold pressed) or Bockingford

1 x size 10 or 12 round watercolour brush.

1 x size 2 or 4 round watercolour brush.

Watercolour paint, either tubes or pans.

If bringing tubes then you will need 1 white mixing palette or china plate

Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Alizarin Crimson

1 x water receptacle (jam jar or plastic container)
