Painting Course Details
All the materials for the day will be laid out for you. Normally we use a limited palette of seven artists watercolours:- French ultramarine, Cobalt blue, Cadmium yellow, Lemon yellow, Raw sienna, Cadmium red and Alizarin crimson. Brushes used are:- 20 mm flat, No.14 round, No. 8 round and No. 2 rigger.
The first stage will be to draw the picture onto the Bockingford 300 gsm rough watercolour paper, using a prepared line drawing. I will explain about composition and simple perspective techniques. The second stage is to show you how to mix colour washes and apply them using wet in wet and wet on dry methods. Gradually the picture builds up using stronger mixes, to illustrate the importance of tonal contrast. A demonstration of different brush stokes will describe how various textures are represented. At the end of the session your finished picture is displayed in a mount to show how effective it looks.
