Learn how to paint quick and expressive watercolours with fewer brush strokes, working from a photograph of your choice. You will work with large size brushes (sizes 12 or 16), adding shape against shape, stroke by stroke, almost never going over the same area twice and leaving large areas of paper untouched. The aim will be to create atmosphere, rather than to strictly copy the subject matter, by using a limited palette, oversimplifying shapes and avoiding adding too many details, regardless of the complexity of the subject matter. You will start with a very basic pencil sketch and, later in the workshop, no pencil at all, painting directly with brush. This approach is fun, rather quick and gives painting that fresh and spontaneous look.
This workshop will suit intermediate/advanced artists.
Materials list will be sent with booking confirmation.
