Please note that all courses in our 2021 Winter Programme will be going ahead. If for any reason our venues have to close due to future restrictions, our courses will be going ahead online which means no course cancellations (is that a cheer we can hear?) book with confidence and start the new year off in a positive, mindful and creative way.
Led by renowned Liverpool based artist Roy Munday, you will learn a variety of watercolour techniques including:
- How to lay on a basic graduated wash
- Wet-in-wet and wet-on-dry
- Combing these two essential techniques together with a variegated wash using more than one colour
Roy will then introduce a subject to the class and demonstrate the exercise before you practice yourself. These exercises will follow the principle of 'lets keep it simple' so that your effort can be about mastering the technique of using watercolour.
You will start by using one colour, so you can concentrate on the application of paint without the complication of colour and how to work tonally. Working from a simple subject you will be shown how to use watercolour effectively so that you can achieve fluid, refreshing and spontaneous paintings, for which watercolour is most suited. You will be encouraged to simplify the subject rather than working to exact detail and fiddling – which often ends in overworked or static paintings.
The emphasis of the course will be to give you confidence so that you can take chances with the medium and experiment to create exciting work. You will be encouraged to work at home, if time allows, to speed-up your progress.
Tutor: Roy Munday
Roy is trained in traditional techniques in both fine art drawing and watercolour, which he uses to create his own portfolio of striking artwork. He has led classes and demonstrations in both disciplines for several years, having been awarded the Norman Moores painting and drawing fellowship.
