Discover the Impact of Colour

Discover the impact of colour. Together, we will paint a simple watercolour landscape in warm colours and a watercolour landscape in cool colours to see the influence of colour. Your tutor will provide step-by-step instructions. You will create a basic colour wheel in stages and in between we will have fun creating exercises to stimulate your senses with colour. You will learn the importance of complementary greys and how they can give your paintings more impact.

This class is suitable for all levels though a basic knowledge of watercolour painting would be an advantage.
