Spring Landscapes in Watercolour with Jonathan Newey
Tuesday 14th April 2020
2pm – 6pm
Course description

This is an afternoon workshop that will give you the tools and knowledge to Paint Spring Landscapes using watercolour with different skills and techniques.
Using photographs supplied by Jonathan, you will learn how to paint the colours of spring landscapes using techniques such as wet on wet, lifting off and layering. Other skills taught will include colour mixing, using a limited palette, how to paint trees, skies, flowers in the landscape and how to use different brush marks. Each exercise will be demonstrated step by step in a relaxed and friendly manner.
By the end of the afternoon you will have painted a couple of beautiful, unique paintings to take home and have the knowledge to paint many more!

PLEASE NOTE: as of March 2020 we have had to add VAT to all our prices - to minimise this added expense for you, we have lowered our workshop and course prices before added the 20%.  This means the prices are a little bit higher, but we (the school and tutor) have absorbed some of the extra cost. We apologise for the slight price increase.
