Watercolour Workshop 1

You don't need to be highly skilled for this watercolour workshop, but a little knowledge, even at a basic level would be useful. Using landscapes with buildings as our inspiration we will explore drawing, colour and composition along with technique. There will be small demonstrations throughout the day as well lots of individual practice with guidance and tuition.
