How To Create The Robust Watercolour Painting with Elaine Hughes (Sept)

Sept 5, 12, 19 (3 sessions)

Wednesdays 11:00 – 2pm
Please register by August 31, 2018

$150+gst

Instructor: Elaine Hughes

In this class we will explore ways to make your watercolour paintings bolder, brighter, and more powerful.  The sessions will focus: first  on materials, second, on how to create strong value contrasts in your work, and finally, how to use colour intensity to your advantage.  Bring a finished or mostly completed example of your own work that you feel is too timid, dull or muddy, as well as reference material that you worked from, and your usual paints and papers.

Through classroom exercises, demos, critiques and working through new versions of your subject, you will learn how to bring more vibrancy to your work.

This course is designed for people who have already have some experience with watercolour painting.
