About the Event
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
We will use a bright yet limited colour palate and explore transparency and a dynamic direct brushwork combined with soft edges using limited layers to give our artworks vive and vibrancy.
Through demos and one to one guidance and support Nicky will show the stages of a painting using traditional watercolour techniques in a contemporary way to create fresh artworks and helps you to do the same whilst progressing your painting skills.
You can transfer the tips and knowledge Nicky offers to many other subject matters in watercolour and other mediums particularly what you learn about tone,colour, composition and creating artworks that sing from the page
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 painting skills and knowledge to develop your confidence and ability to produce successful artworks in the workshop and at home.
This workshop is not appropriate for absolute beginners. Please see other options Westbury Art Centre has to offer if you have no painting experience and wish to try something for beginners before progressing to mixed level workshops with Nicky.
