COLOURED PENCIL and WATERCOLOURS

Back by popular demand – coloured pencil and watercolor.  Tired of the same old techniques in watercolor painting, well this is the class for you. One can achieve such interesting results using coloured pencil or even watercolour pencil with watercolour paints. This style of working can create more intense images, or more soft and sensitive images and you can create wonderful movement throughout your work. This is a great way to work on location or just for sketching. We will cover some basic watercolor techniques but mostly we will be mixing the two. Your choice of whether to use regular coloured pencils or watercolour pencils or both; each have different results. It’s a little like drawing but much more dynamic after you add the paint.
