Watercolour instruction exploring the happy accident. Using texture and backgrounds to increase the spontaneity of your painting we will use techniques to enhance  the thought process.

Free up your painting process by exploring abstract pattern and flowing colour as a first step in your painting session.

Instructor will bring inspirational materials and texture making tools.

If you have any questions please be in touch and the instructor can discuss before class any issues you may have. 


Please bring:

  • at least one full sheet of 140 lb watercolour paper with medium or cold pressed surface 
  • I like to use a basic 5 colour palette – ultramarine blue, pthalo blue, medium yellow ( hansa or new gamboge), permanent rose and burnt sienna. With these 5 colours you can mix just about anything. If you have other colours please bring them.
  • Sketching pencil, soft eraser, ruler, sketch paper

  • masking tape or painters tape
  • masking fluid
  • you'll need at least 3 basic brushes – a 1” flat, a #6 or #7 round, and a rigger or liner #2 or #4 bring your favourites no matter what they are

  • a painting support to lay your painting surface on

  • rags 

  • a spray bottle for water

  • a hand held hair dryer ( I will bring one but it helps to have more than one in the room.

  • Miscellaneous – an apron, a sea sponge, lunch, something to drink to stay hydrated, sea salt or table salt for texture making "
