  • Practicing and applying wet, damp and dry watercolour techniques with an emphasis on the later dry stage.
  • Capturing light and shade in small areas

    To make the experience as stress free as possible,

    I can provide an image and a line drawing of a

    simple plant subject for anyone who wishes to use it.

    For those who choose to draw their own subject,

    I’ll suggest a simple subject. Crab apples, nuts, horse chestnuts,

    Students will have time to do some

    observational drawing in the class.

    • Course outline with objectives
