Event description

Description

Christine Porter creates artwork about shearing sheds, but her watercolour classes are about how to use this medium for any subject matter – landscape, still life, portraiture, journaling.

For many people watercolour is a mystery and far too complicated. This workshop will demystify and simplify this truly exciting medium. We explain the similarities and differences between watercolour and opaque painting media. We’ll look at tools, materials and techniques. Some are peculiar to watercolour, some cross over. Clue: they are more similar than you’d imagine, given the hype.

Suits any painter, but will be specifically aimed at artists (experienced and beginner) who work in other media such as acrylic, oil, egg tempera, gouache, printmaking or other opaque media - or indeed, any other media.

These artists may or may not go on to work with watercolour, but the day will give them enough information to use it comfortably. For artists already using watercolour, the information will complement other teachers’ information.

We’ll do a series of short activities that will be bound into an artist made studio resource book. I provide all the materials so you get a crash course in those too. We’ll create a small finished artwork in the day, but the emphasis will be on gathering information for artists to go back to their studios with.
