About the Event


We will  take a 'virtual'  late summer stroll from the comfort of our desks, using pen and wash watercolour technique, using a drawing pen and a limited colour palette.  We will create a variety of small paintings with a summer walk and picnic theme.

Many students have requested this method which combines illustration and paint, it's very portable, uses minimal kit and can be used to sketch and paint on location on holiday or days out, or make little cards and sketches to send to friends. It is a lovely painting style to explore and dare I say a much easier one?

A workshop for those who enjoy drawing and want an introduction into using one of the simpler watercolour methods using minimal materials and a limited colour palette. Or an alternative way of using watercolour for those already familiar using it in the traditional  glazed way or loose and vibrant way as we often do in my workshops.

Regular water colour 1 day workshops Wednesday, Friday and Saturday - monthly

The aim is to support you on your watercolour journey, learn new techniques and methods to improve your painting skills particularly in the loose and dynamic style which Nicky is so well known for.  If you love florals, landscapes and natural and organic subjects the content of these workshops will inspire you.

Build a regular watercolour practice in a friendly, encouraging class packed with demos and 1 to 1 support from an enthusiastic tutor. You will go home with a painting or two on a certain theme and a bundle of new creative skills and knowledge to develop your confidence and creativity at home.
