6 week course February 2018
with MIKE KOWALSKI
The aim of this class is to get everyone off on the right foot. Unlike other mediums watercolour, in my opinion is a bit more challenging. You need to be knowledgeable about pigments and colours, paper and brushes and how the actual medium, water effects all this. Drawing is also very important, so we will be covering some drawing technique. In 6 sessions will cover the elements in making a good picture and how to to use all aspects of watercolor in a way that may suit you, the artist, best.
A background on watercolour with lecture and demonstration, including a talk on materials involved. Brushwork techniques. We will try and pack in plenty of information this first day. Sketching and some painting exercises.
