Summer and Winter in Watercolour

Summer and Winter in Watercolour

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

The warm, bright, sparkling light of a summer’s day. The cold, wet drizzle and fading light of a winter’s evening. Artists use a variety of techniques, colours, tones and brush work to express the different appearance and moods of the land and sea in different seasons and weather. In a few easy exercises we will paint some simplified scenes that express the varied feelings of summer and winter. Additional materials approx $30
