Loosening up: gestural watercolour landscape (sold out)

  • Waterperry Gardens OX33 1LA (map)

Big brushes, lots of paint, and bold gestural mark-making will encourage you to see the bigger picture rather than detail, building your confidence to loosen up your work and paint in big sweeps of watercolour. You'll be encouraged to paint in your own style, though we will also reference the work of 20th Century abstract painters, including Ivon Hitchens and later abstract expressionists.

**Please note: this is an advanced class. If it's your first time with me, or you have been to a few of my classes but aren't yet confident about rapidly setting up a palette of mixed colours, or you are a bit rusty, please also book one of the Making Watercolour Glow classes, on Wednesday 28th June or Saturday 12th August.

**We won’t spend time on the foundational techniques I teach, which underpin being able to let rip in gestural watercolour. Without some familiarity with my materials and methods, this class will not be suitable for you. 

  • This workshop is now fully booked. Please ask, if you'd like to be on the waiting list.
