Atmospheric Watercolours with Faith Love Robertson
April 11th and 12, 2024 10am to 3pm
Atmospheric Watercolour – This course is great for everyone because there is a minimum of drawing and a maximum of free style paint applications.
Painting with layers and lifting techniques to achieve plays of light in different atmospheric conditions.
Underpainting to create the impression of emerging light. Wet on Wet techniques to capture an incoming storm – mixing darks to accent the moonlight.
We shall use special colour mixes and applications to portray effects of moisture in the air, low light and high light conditions.
I will bring reference material for you but if you have something that presents an atmospheric challenge and would like to discuss it please feel free to bring it.
