Continuing Watercolour Wednesdays- Robyn Eastgate-Manning
$178.00 - $213.00
14 February to 3 April
This is an 8 week course.
This course is the next step for those who have some experience under their belts and want to continue learning more about watercolour. We highly recommend that participants complete the Learn to Draw and Paint Beginners course before advancing to this one. We can accommodate a beginner if this night works better for you or there are insufficient numbers to run the other Class.
What will you learn? Each week Robyn will reinforce existing techniques and also extend your skills by teaching new subject matter or combinations of techniques. You will cover using hard and soft edges to achieve specific effects, mixing effective darks for contrast in your work, using washes to develop different moods in a painting, applying charged washes to create unique colours within your painting and more.
You will tackle a range of subjects including: skies, seas, different weather, trees in landscape, buildings, urban scenes and shadows as well as still life and botanical subjects.
