Watercolours are famous for their transparency, luminosity, and vibrancy. The paint pigments are diluted making beautiful, bright, thin layers of colour. Making them perfect to celebrate the colours of the winter solstice. While winter is famous for early evenings, and dark nights, winter also dazzles with the amazing colours of the sun and moon reflecting off frozen surfaces, snow, clouds, and the stark silhouettes of nature.
This 6-week watercolour painting class is Bryony, a local to Victoria artist who uses deep and expressive colours and a realistic style to bring paintings to life. This class not only teaches the fundamentals of watercolour painting, but dives teaches students to make 5 distinct watercolour paintings of animals or nature scenes. In a creative and supportive environment, students will learn shading, lighting, shapes, colour mixing, how to use various watercolour painting tools, and the techniques involved with painting each distinct subject.
At the end of the program students have the opportunity to submit their art to be put up in the NatureSketch Gallery.
Instructor will email students with finalised details a few days prior to the beginning of the class.
