ESSENCE OF WATERCOLOURS with Amanda Doctor Tuesdays 9.30am -12pm

9.30am -12.00pm

Tuesdays starting 27th April

9 week term


If tonal value is the structure - the bones and muscle - of a painting, the illusion of light gives it its
soul. Watercolour artists work transcendent magic by creating the illusion of light on 2 dimensions
with pigment and water.

In this 9 wk course students will learn to lay a flat wash and variations, colour mixing, overlaying
colours, creating highlights and light and will cover all aspects of watercolour painting - papers,
brushes, colours and techniques.

Chien Chung-Wei a wonderful Taiwanese watercolour artist sums it well when he says, “Know
what you want, figure out the sequence and direction, concentrate on doing it and notice every
trace left by your every movement. This is watercolour, this is life”
