Landscapes: What makes a painting subject and where can we find inspiration? This workshop will discuss these conundrums, as well as composition ideas. We’ll plan our paintings and then follow demonstrations of gravity painting techniques to make the most of the paint moving in water and create our own imaginary landscape. Book one day or extend your learning over two. Portraits: This day will suit those with some experience of painting with watercolours. Our session is based around a head and shoulders photographic portrait. Learn how to control wet-in-wet running paint to create deep tone and explain the fall of light across the features of a human face.Understand composition, focal point(s), colour mixing, building up tone, etc.
