Join our second two-day Masterclass series with Tony Smibert as you learn how great historical watercolour Masters painted in only one hue.

About this event

Join the second instalment within the Tony Smibert Masterclass series as we explore ‘scale-practice’, the art and technique of tonal painting; one of the most important historical training methods of watercolour art.

John Glover was highly skilled in monochrome as was JMW Turner whose later, light-filled, glorious colourings were only made possible by his grounding in this tonal method.

About this series

For three weekends you'll be initiated into an apprenticeship with an internationally recognised master of watercolour at the Art Gallery at Royal Park.

This Masterclass series with Tony Smibert is designed to be a progressive series, allowing you to either build and refine skills throughout the duration of the program or attend individual sessions as a standalone experience.
