STEVE BRETEL - WATERCOLOUR PLUS – exploring different styles and adding different mediums

Start Date: Saturday, 21st March 2020 at 10:00 AM
End Date: Saturday 21 March 2020 16:00

What will I learn?
An expressive, loose watercolour style will be shown, and as the day develops you will be able to combine this with salts, bleach and wax resist, along with using clingfilm and stamping for textures, and masking fluid for preserving whites and specific areas. You’ll also cover planning and composing your paintings.
Applie on Facebook or in the shop. £50
What will I need to bring?
As this is a progression on the Watercolour Basics workshop, participants will need most of their own equipment from the list supplied. There is a 10% discount in store for participants.
Kit List: Watercolour paints – Winsor & Newton Cotman is a good, mid-price range, but there are many others available. Selection of colours – at least primaries. Tubes ideally, but pans are fine. Watercolour paper – sheets, or pads – ideally ‘NOT’ surface (cold pressed) but any will do, weight of at least 200gsm.
Brushes – Watercolour round – sizes 3 (that has a good point), 6 and 9 and a flat brush – any size. Soft pencil. Masking tape. Kitchen roll. Masking fluid.

Who is the workshop for?
