'Poppy Seed Heads' with Nicky Hunter - 29th October 2020
Poppy Seed Heads
Create a beautiful watercolour painting using rich tonal variations and texture to capture the unique character of poppy seed head, experiment with scale from tiny and precious to bold and majestic.
There will plenty of demos and 1 to 1 guidance through out the day to help your confidence and knowledge and joy for painting with the challenging yet exciting medium of watercolour progress.
Please bring your regular water colour kit including brushes, paints, pencil and rubber and wear old clothes or an apron.
paper stretched ready to paint, Water-pots and palates are provided and some other items you may need are included as well as source reference material in the form of real, fresh or dried flowers, quality photos or other visual reference material.
watercolour in tubes or pans, which ever you prefer.
Please bring what ever you have no need to purchase anything new specifically as Ive always got items to share if you are missing a specific colour.
There are many brands that are good, however its best to avoid beginner sets or anything that is Acadamy or Student quality as they will be poorer quality and hinder your progress.
You will need a small medium & large watercolour brush, round or mop style are best. A small detailer or rigger and a wash brush are useful too, not essential as I have spares.
(I prefer Sable or Squirrel hair but good quality soft synthetic are fine too)
Watercolour paper can be purchased stretched and ready to paint for £2. You may wish to bring your own paper however - Not or Rough texture minimum 300 gran weight, size quarter imperial or A3 is usually best for this style of painting.
