Our first workshop of the year ...

March 25th: Greg Hindle, Watercolour workshop focused on techniques

Through demonstration and experimentation, this workshop will focus on traditional transparent techniques of watercolour, including different effects of mixing... wet into wet, layering, and brush use. We will also touch on the more non-traditional use of the medium to achieve different textures, opacity using acrylics, lifting with gum Arabic, wax resist, etc. Everyone will gain a better understanding of the properties of watercolour and confidence in its use as a painting medium.
