Wednesday 11th, 18th, 25th January, 1st and 8th February 2023
10.00am to 12.00pm
An introduction to combining watercolours with fineliner to create cityscapes and paintings of buildings.
- Use fineliner with watercolour to draw and describe architecture capturing both the colours and atmosphere
- Apply at least one colour group (complimentary, tertiary of analogous) to at least one painting using colour wheel theory
- Create at least three watercolour and fineliner drawings
- Identify how a mindful and focused task lowers stress
About the course: Fineliner and watercolour are beautiful mediums that have a long history of use and when used together they can create both accurate and impactful paintings
Who is this course for: Beginners and improvers. Individuals looking to develop their creative skills using fineliner pen and watercolours, over informal fun sessions
Previous knowledge or experience: None required except lots of enthusiasm, willingness to learn and a desire to have fun. This is a very creative style of painting and so very suitable for beginners
How will I learn: This is a relaxing and friendly course with step by step demonstrations. You will be gently guided through different drawing and painting activities, starting at the basics. Each week will focus on specific elements used within art with architecture as the subject. The focus is on small scale sketches rather than a big final painting
How will I be assessed: Through observation, questioning, discussion and peer/self-evaluation
What shall I bring: All materials will be provided
Next steps: Painting portraits in watercolour
