Mixing Green


Be inspired by how nature uses green and then learn how to mix your own subtle greens to capture the colour of leaves in your painting. Linda’s working with watercolour, but you can apply these ideas to any paint media or even dyes! Love colour? Take a look at Linda’s blog post on how using a touch of complementary colour can lift your project. View the blog.

Watercolour Rescue

Have you ever started a watercolour painting, but then it didn’t turn out quite as you hoped? Don’t worry! We find that happens all the time, but there are lots of things you can try to rescue your work. In this workshop Linda will guide you through some of the practical solutions she has for fixing those paintings that don’t quite work out first time.

Using Masking Fluid

Using masking fluid can be a versatile method for your watercolour painting both for conventional paintings and in your sketchbook work. In this workshop Linda will show you different ways to apply it for great effect. 

Watercolour Flower Painting

Join Linda for a step-by-step demonstration of painting flowers. She’ll show you how to control washes of watercolour and build layers to paint your subject. See how an underdrawing is successfully integrated into your painting and how to manage the flow of paint and lift out colour where necessary. Even if you’ve never painted with watercolour before, Linda will help you achieve great results.
