Course Description

Explore mark-making to add movement and vitality to your watercolour paintings of the Turquoise Bays surrounding Rottnest Island. Many techniques will be taught, such as wet into wet and glazing, to describe shadows of a Morton Bay fig tree and Rottnest Ochre Buildings. About your Tutor The Australian Landscape has always been a source of inspiration for my paintings. Having experimented with other mediums I have specialised in watercolour painting and feel challenged by its beautiful effects and possibilities. As well as exhibiting my work I enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge. What you need to bring Materials & Equipment List: PAINTS – Artist’s quality tubes BEGINNER’S TUBES 1.
