WATERCOLOUR COURSES & WORKSHOPS

Try it for yourself – Learn how to paint – with a little help from me!

Since moving to the wonderful hilltop village of Competa over a year ago, I have been asked by many of my students to run courses from Spain.  Who could resist the wonderful climate, walks to the national park, delicious food and wine, with the coast a mere half an hour away?

So, I am ready to go …

From November 2017 I will be running one to one classes from my home studio in the heart of the village.  Courses are suitable for all levels so even if you have never painted or are an advanced botanical artist, these courses will be tailored to suit your needs.

I will show you step by step how to create realistic botanical paintings, let you into a few of my secrets on how, with very little photo-editing, you can have the perfect photograph to work from!

With plenty of accommodation locally to chose from, starting from just 20 euros per night, you will have a wonderful holiday.

The tuition is one to one (or why not bring a friend?) and will be held from my home studio in the heart of the village.

I will show you step by step how to create realistic botanical watercolours. You will learn how to take the guesswork out of handling this tricky medium.

My proven technique will show you how to:

  • Control watercolour with confidence to produce smooth washes

  • Produce intricate botanical watercolours
  • Learn remedies to rescue watercolours ‘wobbles’
  • How to successfully work from photographs
