An Innovative Approach to Watercolours

with Tony White

 

Date: Tuesday 20 - Thursday22 July

10am-4pm daily

Cost: $126 for Colour Circle Members and $144 for Non- Members.


Suitable for Beginners to Advanced.

 

· Learn to see things in new ways.

· Interpret subjects with artistic flair rather than exact likeness. 

 

This workshop is designed to take the edge off of the often-daunting,

maddening world of Watercolour Painting. Simply focusing on tone,

composition and above all, FUN, we’ll be producing simple, strong and

striking scenes. Picking subjects can be frustrating because we are often looking to replicate something that already exists rather than taking the seemingly mundane and bringing it to life with our own individual flair. I will teach you to see beyond the superficial and sharpen your artistic vision.
