Painting landscapes in pen and watercolour - full weekend workshop

Join me in learning to paint landscapes in pen and watercolour. In this full weekend workshop I'll give you a whole range of tools for painting landscapes from photos, and a tips and tricks for sketching outside.


Over two days we will cover...
- watercolour application techniques (wet in wet, wet on dry, dry brushing and glazing)
- aerial perspective to give your landscapes a wonderful sense of depth
- linear perspective so that you can draw and paint buildings
- composition and a bit of colour theory
- how to paint skies, mountains, water, reflections, and buildings
- if the weather is fine, we'll head outside for a sketching session
- advice on materials (paper, paints and brushes)


Some materials can be provided, but it would be preferable if you brought your own so that you can get comfortable with your own tools. A suggested materials list will be emailed to you when you sign up. Please check your SPAM folder if you don't receive a confirmation email from me in a couple of days.


Maximum number of students is 8.


Course cost is $180.


Next workshop - 6 & 7 February 2021, Wanaka Arts Centre, 10am to 4pm.
