‘Flowers, Birds and Bugs’ 5 Day Workshop, April 2015


This is an opportunity to join me in April for a 5 day workshop (possibly my only one for 2015) It hasn’t been opened to the public quite yet but Fay Boyd will be taking bookings from here as from today so if you want to come along, give her a call and get your name down. Places are limited and it usually books up fast… Hope to see you there!

5 Day Grafton NSW Workshop ~ ‘Flowers, Birds and Bugs’
Dates: April 12 to 16, 2015 inclusive

Through extensive demonstrations, thorough step by step tuition and guided hands on learning, this workshop will explore painting a range of natural subjects with a strong focus on improving your over all watercolour techniques that will assist you in any application you should choose. Working in transparent watercolour, we will apply ourselves to a selection of beautiful floral subjects, we will look at what’s involved in illustrating small birds and we will have fun navigating the delicate and fascinating art of insects painting too.

Each of these focus areas will allow us to explore essential watercolour techniques such as working with washes, the more complex process of glazing (or layers of wash) and the intricate art of dry brushing; the foundations to managing this medium well. Through this we will build a sound understanding and love of watercolour, and of this genre. We will establish valuable strategies for achieving successful outcomes and find a new level of confidence in your work together, ultimately establishing the footholds for independent painting.

Artists with any level of experience are welcome in this workshop so come along and enjoy learning more about this wonderful art form and medium
