'Foxgloves and Bees' with Nicky Hunter - 22nd May 2020
Capture foxgloves swaying in the breeze surrounded buy the activity of bees using loose and lively watercolour techniques.
Nicky will provide quality source reference material such as photos, silk flowers or fresh flowers for your inspiration.
There will be plenty of demos to help you progress through the stages of creating a painting and lots of individual support.
Nicky aims to help you improve your understanding of watercolour painting technique and encourages you to loosen up your painting style and liven up your brushwork so you can get the most out of this exciting paint medium and bring your watercolours to life with radiant translucent colour and fluid confident painting.
The workshop is mixed ability although perhaps not suitable for those with absolutely no experience, However if you have no experience but a 'have a go attitude' and want to just get stuck in you are welcome to try too.
