The medium of Water Colour is extensive, mysterious, beautiful and spontaneous.
Understanding its nature and using it creatively unleashes a spirit and enables us to explore the wonderful world of the unknown. Watercolour techniques can enable the artist to explore images and concepts expressively, abstractly, realistically and intimately with the freedom that transparency, colour and water allow.
This 2 Day workshop is designed to introduce the participants to a variety of watercolour techniques that can enrich their ideas creatively and experimentally. Each participant will have the opportunity to explore, discover and experiment with all the demonstrated techniques.
On Day 1, Nettie will guide the participants through a series of fun, creative, visual exercises, exploring watercolour techniques including colour theory exercises, using different types of papers, tone, texture, depth, light, masking, expression, abstraction and realism. Through a series of demonstrations then participation, the participants will gain confidence with the medium.
On Day 2, Nettie will work with each participant on a one to one basis to create a piece of visual art based on the creative exercises using water colour.
This workshop is beneficial for beginners to advanced and for those with no previous art experience.
