Course Description

This course will introduce you to Watercolours and give you a good grounding in basic drawing skills and watercolour techniques. You will learn how to apply the same basic steps to any watercolour to achieve great results. About the tutor: I came to Australia from Africa in 1987 and have been painting in watercolours for about 28 years. I have exhibited in and around Perth for most of those years and have won numerous awards over the years. I belong to the Watercolour Society of WA and exhibit with them annually apart from being on the Committee for the Society. I have a passion for watercolour and feel very strongly that I would like to pass on my knowledge. About the Course: I will start this beginner's course talking about materials and why these are essential to learn the techniques of watercolour. You will spend several weeks learning the different techniques and then I will teach you how to approach a drawing and how to capture the essence of a scene without going into too much unnecessary detail. We will tackle several different but fairly simple scenes and I will break down the process in a systematic way enabling you to understand the steps it takes to produce a good watercolour painting. You will learn how to apply the techniques you have learnt to a painting to maximum effect.
