Course Description

Bring drama and atmosphere to your watercolour paintings with this exciting short course. We will look at landscapes, building skills each week that you can apply to any watercolour painting. About the Tutor: Cass Gartner 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 An important part of a successful watercolour is a sense of drama in the composition and execution of the painting. Learn how drama can create atmosphere in your painting process during this short course. We will look at landscapes and build skills each week that you can apply to any watercolour painting.
