New: Live paint-along workshops online:

I have created two new programmes of live watercolour workshops – a beginners and an intermediate series – that you can join in online during our weeks at home. Set up your paints on a table top, make sure you are attached to good wifi and click to join our friendly sessions. Chose a three week course each month or drop in for individual subjects.

New May workshops!

Dear watercolour painters,

This dreary weather may be encouraging you to dream of a warm summer break on the beach…my new Bath Watercolour Workshop schedule includes a watercolour Seascapes workshop to help you brush up on those wet-in-wet techniques ready for the holidays!

Or try committing your daydreams to paper in Imaginary Landscapes. On 2nd May we will discuss ways to combine magazine images, photographs and your memories to create a one-off landscape image dreamt up by you!

Meanwhile, there are still spaces left on the new Portraits from life workshop in two weeks’ time. Try sketching from a clothed life model or bring a friend and sketch from each other in watercolours.
Best wishes, Catherine

Autumn Bath Watercolour Workshops in full swing!

We had a lovely Bath Watercolour Workshop portrait session this week. Participants had bags of enthusiasm and produced some fantastic results I think you’ll agree!
If you are interested in trying to apply all the subtlety and drama of expressive watercolour to a portrait subject, email me to find out the next workshop dates later in the spring.
