Course overview

This course is for learners who have got some watercolour experience and want to push their painting skills further.

Over ten weeks, this course will cover different watercolour skills and techniques including watercolour pencils, wet on dry, wet on wet, masking, sponging, dry brush, pull in colour, salt, splattering, lifting, pen and ink and scumbling. We will explore the farm theme across the ten weeks, looking at animals, people, machinery and the countryside for inspiration.

You will be encouraged to create your own compositions around the theme.

Every week there will be discussion, instruction, demonstrations and plenty of hand on opportunities for you to have a go.

Taught by author, illustrator and entertainer Ade Bowen, these courses are as fun as they are helpful. If you wish to develop your watercolour confidence and skills within this farm theme and build on your existing skills, you will love this course.
