Using the expressive qualities of watercolour, you will explore shape, form, volume and structure, you will also paint the spatial context.
Through a flexible approach you will initially investigate tonal systems through a limited palette, progressing to observed / perceptual colour as your experience increases. This course is suitable for all levels as you will be guided through all aspects of colour mixing and paint handling, as well as any formal formal drawing concerns.
