DO you want to paint with confidence and passion? DO you want to develop the mindset that allows you to just get stuck in? This workshop is the one for you!

It is only paper and paint and water. Just do it!

In this workshop we will focus on bringing you out of your comfort-zone and into the world of loose, vibrant, fresh and free-flowing watercolours. Lose the rigidity that has been plaguing your work. A fresh approach means that your watercolours will come to life. Your inhibitions gone and your own artistic flair and passion will come to the fore.

Applying the paint with purpose, while ensuring we take care of the essentials such as composition and tone, you will leave this workshop with a new-found confidence and attitude towards this fantastic medium.

Saturday 17th June

This one day workshop will cover the basics of animal portraits (pets and wildlife) particularly bringing an image or drawing to life with colour, detail and dimension. The principles can apply to any medium and Barbara will be including tips relevant to watercolour, acrylic, oils, scratchboard and pastels.

Attendees will be provided with demonstrations of particular anatomical features and an overall portrait and mentored in completing their own portrait as part of the workshop.  Participants will be encouraged to develop their own style and to try different approaches.

We will explore ways text can be used in your art practice.

If the message is important, we need lettering to be legible. As our lettering becomes more illegible, we can create textures that give us a variety of graphic forms to work with. The focus here won’t be on the finer details of a ‘script’ but on the feel of the bigger picture.

We’ll try variations on enhancing your legible handwriting. Then experiment with creating textures and looking at how to use them.

No Calligraphy experience needed
