Fridays | Paint with Watercolours 10 week course - 18+yrs
Explore the wonder of watercolour painting with Sophie Newnham. Watercolour is a wonderful medium whether adding a wash of colour to a drawing, layering it up as a way of creating new colours and shades or as a way to create delicate textures and form. This medium has a subtlety and translucency to it as well as leaving an unexpected element of surprise through drying.
Over the weeks, we will be looking at a handful of artists who have found new ways for it to be used, embracing the unexpected nature of watercolour.
