I offer an introduction to “gravity painted” watercolours in a relaxed environment at corporate events, away-days and retreats . My method relies less on fine motor skill and more on opening up to “go with the flow”. No complex colour theories, just watching stepped demonstrations and dropping in pure colour, salt and other interventions and watching the surprising chemistry that results. The “wet-in-wet techniques” gradually relax and enthral, to create a meditation-like space and reveal the joy that can be found in shared creativity.
I am currently recommended on the Royal Crescent Hotel Bath’s website as a Bath visitors’ experience after providing their guests with painting tuition in the hotel’s stunning gardens.
I can tailor subjects to the workshop location if required. I am used to running training events and before taking up painting in 1996, I had a former career as a personnel manager and graduate of the Institute of Personnel and Development.
some comments from delegates:
“I was so pleased to have experienced Catherine’s art class and …truly amazed at her extraordinary talent which blew me away not to mention what a gorgeous person she is. I won’t give up my day job yet to become a painter but it was really interesting to see what on earth I would create when given the time just to paint.”
“Catherine, the art teaching was fabulous and I’d love to try one of your courses”
“I am enjoying getting to grips with watercolours and to tapping into my own creativity. See below for the picture I produced at Brecon (Mentoring Plus Corporate Wellbeing Weekend) which I have framed as I love the colours so much!”
“Thanks again for your fantastic and innovative intro to watercolours.”
