Beginners Watercolour Workshop

What To Expect

This beginners watercolour workshop is designed to introduce you to using watercolours without purchasing a lot of supplies. Good quality art supplies make all the difference in watercolour painting.  I will supply Winsor & Newton Professional watercolour paints and Arches 140 lb. paper. These are the paints and paper that I use.  It does make a difference. I will also have quality brushes for you to work with.  

  • Start the class by picking up a brush and learning techniques like wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, dry brush, lifting out, spattering, washes, graduated washes, hard edges, soft edges and more.

  • Next, you will learn to mix colours.  You'll make your own secondary colours:  greens, purples, oranges and most mysterious of all, you will make black!

  • After you've practised techniques and colour mixing, you will have a chance to paint your own picture.  Quality reference photos will be supplied.

  • Students work at their own pace.

  • The workshop runs from 10 a.m. through to 4 p.m.  Bring your own lunch;  you are welcome to eat it in the studio.  Alternatively, you could take the hour to check out a local restaurant.

  • Coffee/tea & snacks provided
