2 day course: 10am - 4pm

Learn to loosen up your floral watercolour painting with acclaimed artist and tutor, Vivienne Cawson on this new two day course.

Tutor: Vivienne Cawson

Cost:  £160

Level:  This course is suitable for all abilities.

During the two days, you will learn to capture the essence of still life flowers, working expressively and using a limited palette to create spontaneous floral watercolour paintings.

Through demonstrations, exercises and guidance, Vivienne will teach you how to focus on the key elements of drawing and observation, whilst working quickly to create expressive paintings. You will be encouraged to make important decisions quickly, so as to describe the subject adequately with essential, minimal detail resulting in work which captures the moment.

By the end of the course, students will have created a series of floral watercolour studies exploring all of the techniques mentioned and will leave with the skills and confidence to apply these to their future work.

What to bring: Students are expected to bring their own watercolour brushes and paints. The tutor will supply a recommended list in advance of the course.

Materials fee: There will be an additional £5 materials fee to cover paper and other studio sundries. This is payable in cash directly to the tutor at the start of the course.
