During your course we will explore all basic techniques for applying watercolour, from wet into wet, layered washes, dry brushing, glazing, and wax resist.
We will look at colour mixing and “palette craft”, look at ways of creating space and depth in a landscape and simple compositional ideas such as placing of focal points and rule of thirds.
Do not buy any materials until your course is confirmed as running.
Materials RequiredThere are two kinds of watercolour paint: tubes and tablet form or “pans”. It is personal preference really: tubes are much easier to work with when starting out although pans are more practical if you want to go outside and paint in the landscape as they come in a compact box and the lid doubles up as a palette.Buy a middle grade range of paints such as Daler Rowney Georgian range or Winsor and Newton Cotman range. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy a ready-made starter set but if you are buying them individually then the following colours are recommended:Cadmium yellow light Cadmium red hue, (not cadmium red deep)Ultra-marine bluePermanent roseViridian green, or Phthalo GreenBurnt SiennaAlso useful: Phthalo Blue (or Windsor Blue Green shade), Yellow OchreYou do not need black or white paint!Paper: Weight 140lb /300gsm Texture rough. Middle range such as Daler Rowney Langton roughBrushes: There are three varieties: Nylon, Sable/synthetic blend, and pure Sable. Prices go up accordingly, A Daler Rowney Nylon is ok to start with, but Sable is lovely and lasts a lifetime, the blended brush is a good compromise. Two brushes a big and a small one: A number 10 and a number 2. An HB pencil and a soft rubber.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
