DESCRIPTION

Overview
A relaxing day in the artist’s studio making a watercolour painting from start to finish. We’ll be working through the steps Christine takes when she paints every watercolour she creates – from the smallest apple to the largest woolshed. This is a workshop about the process, so we'll be using various still life and views in Christine's garden as our muse: working small so all the steps can be investigated properly. At the end of the day everyone will have a small painting to (possibly) frame. Most importantly they will have enough information to go home and paint whatever subject they are interested in.

This is a stand-alone class, with no pre-requisites, but is part of the “Little Red Book of Watercolour” series of workshops. If this is your first Studio Door Art Workshop you'll recieve the "Little Red Book of Watercolour" worksbook.

We explore
- how to choose your subject, and how to plan it to fit on your page.
- strategies for recording your object/scene
- how to match colours to the environment
- two ways to approach the actual painting part of the process
- what to do if you think it looks wrong – and be kind about it.
- how to finish your work
- information about storing/framing/presenting your finished work

Activities will include
- teacher demonstration, discussion
- printed notes, student notes
- painting/colour exercises using still life and garden-scape - including creating a small painting from start to finish.
- follow-up activities to do at home
- learning experiences are collated into a useful artist-made resource work-book called "The Little Red Book of Watercolour"

The Little Red Book of Watercolour
Christine has developed a work-book called "The Little Red Book of Watercolour". It describes everything that Christine has learnt about watercolour in her 30 + years with this media. Each workshop in this series, that will spread out over the year, explores a different element of this fabulous medium. Topics include: mixing colour, paper, brushes and other tools, creating the illusion of distance, painting on site, painting trees etc. Each class can be taken independently, there are no pre-requisites, and the information complements any other teachers’ work.

Children?
This class suits adults. If there is enough interest Christine will organise a teenage or children's class, though there are a number of children's art classes in Lismore.

Getting to the workshop, parking.
The workshop is being held at Christine's studio in East Lismore. When you have enrolled we'll send you a mud-map with directions and parking information.
