Course outline

The characteristics of watercolour is explored by painting simple compositions. This course will cover a range of materials – different papers, paint mixes, brushes, and the techniques – washes, graduation and variegation of colour.

During each session a small painting will be completed. You will be guided through a demonstration of painting techniques.
