The watercolour Zoom classes have now finished for this year. If you want to be informed of my classes please fill out a contact form and I will send out the details of upcoming courses or workshops. Thank you to all who took part in this series of classes, I enjoyed it a lot and got a lot out of it, I hope you did too!
Watercolour, like any other painting medium, has its own particular character, which I want to explore during these sessions. They are designed for both beginners and painters with more experience. Although the theory will be common to all painting media many of the techniques will be new to some and we will keep coming back to the same topics with each painting we approach together. In this way we could say that it is a cyclical course.

Our weekly Watercolour group zoom meetings will be every Wednesday morning from 10 am to 12 mid day and evening from 7 to 9 pm. We will be working from images that I post on my subject matter blog a few days before to give you plenty of time to study, download or print the jpeg before our session. I have chosen images that will give us a starting point for our watercolour exploration of colour, light and composition bearing in mind that a great painting is not dependent on beautiful subject matter. Subscribe to the blog to get the image every week participate in the conversation about watercolour painting in the Painter's Blog section.
The structure of each session will contain:
a warm up to practice technique
a discussion around painting theories of colour, contrast, volume etc
Introductions to the work of selected past and present watercolourists.
suggestions for possible approaches to the painting
the step by step demonstration and paint along
Opportunities for questions about the process and feedback on your work
I welcome your questions at any time during the session to help dispel any confusion and it is up to you how closely you follow what I'm doing, your own style and temperament will dictate your particular way of working. You will be given the opportunity to show your work during the session for group feedback, as it really helps us to see other perspectives, but it is fine if you don't feel like doing this.
I have put the information about watercolour materials and equipment on a separate page which you can navigate to here or download it here
