You shall cover basic drawing skills such as construction drawing and moulding form with light and shade. We will look at the traditional ways of applying watercolour: wet into wet, layered washes, glazes etc. We will also make experimental paintings. You will observe still life objects and express space and atmosphere in landscapes. There will be demonstrations and ample time to experiment.
