Watercolour Painting

Are you new to watercolour? Or want to develop skills you already have? Here you’ll find all our watercolour painting workshops. Waterbased media offers a diverse and wide-ranging approach to painting, mixed media and sketchbook work. Along with conventional watercolour techniques we’ve included some of our favourite related mixed media techniques such as using oil and resist, Neocolor II, and gouache.

Learn to Paint - Watercolour Still Life

We have lots of short workshops (take a look below), but if you’re looking for a painting course please check out Learn to Paint: Watercolour Still Life.

In six sessions with Linda as your tutor (and Laura working along as a student), we’ll cover the materials and equipment you’ll need and a variety of techniques for painting your chosen objects including washes, lifting out, quick methods to draw your subject, using masking fluid and composition.
