WATERCOLOUR FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS - 2 DAY WEEKEND WORKSHOP -
SAT. 11 JAN 20 & SUN. 12 JAN 20 - 9.30AM - 4.30PM (ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED)!!

This will be a FULL WEEKEND of 13.0 HOURS duration from my HOME STUDIO and will cater specifically to smaller groups of students (6-8 students max.) allowing greater level of direct instruction and assistance. ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED!!

My ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS watercolour weekends are a NEW format intended to be a relaxing environment for students with "LIMITED" to "NO" watercolour experience to come and immerse themselves in a total watercolour experience. My weekend workshop aims to teach each student basic watercolour skills by using well understood watercolour techniques in "easy to follow", step by step painting methods. This workshop will cover a broad range of watercolour basics, including;

  1. an understanding of what materials to use and why, including paper, paint and brushes

  2. learning to paint with washes, layers and fundamental brush techniques

  3. developing an understanding for how "gravity" and "time" affects the painting process

  4. developing strategies to painting before you start

  5. learning how to mix colours with some basic colour theory

  6. understanding the importance of composition, tone, depth, focal point and light/shade

As the weekend workshop unfolds, students will be building their initial body of knowledge by continuous exploration through a series of exercises designed to develop an understanding at every step. New information will be added progressively so that earlier knowledge (techniques) are retained and reinforced through continuous repitition.

The weekend will be packed with numerous painting exercises culminating in the completion of a variety of smalll paintings with emphasis placed on developing a "holistic" approach to the entire painting process. We will not overly concern ourselves with "detail" as much as we will concentrate on broader aspects of achieving consistent results with painting techniques, articulating our use and mixing of (pigment) colour and broadly developing an appreciation for composition, focal point, light and shade.

Importantly - we want to make sure that painting watercolours is exciting, fun and rewarding. So please remember, watercolours are an amazing medium to use BUT will require from you over the weekend, patience, perseverance and above all - a lot of humour!

In these classes we will be painting with tube watercolour paints. We will be using good quality watercolour papers and using both synthetic and natural fibre watercolour brushes. ALL PAINTS, PAPERS AND BRUSHES WILL BE PROVIDED as part of the weekend workshop and allow you to try this great medium without having to spend any money to get started.

Come and try this fascinating and challenging medium!

I look forward to seeing you at this workshop or at one of my classes.

regards,

Szczepan Urbanowicz
