Watercolour Sketching & Landscapes

Full day workshop - Wed 24 July 10 - 4pm with Siri France

Class Details

Come and spend a few hours drawing and painting our beautiful local canal! We’ll start the day by the side of the canal sketching the reflections in the water, the trees, boats and the boathouse. Siri will give some pointers about starting out, establishing composition using tone and thumbnail sketches, and working with pencils and watercolour. In the afternoon we’ll take our sketches into the studio to work on them a little further, working on such things as colour, mark making, and cropping. Should it rain (as if!) we will work indoors from photo reference and imagination. Please bear in mind, this class involves ssome walking, and there may not be available benches. Students with limited mobility are advised to bring a folding chair if you have one. All materials including a sketchbook and refreshments are provided, and you are welcome to bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio at lunchtime. There are also a number of cafes and good local shops if you prefer to buy lunch on the day.
