PAINT LIKE AN IMPRESSIONIST

One of the most loved painters were the Impressionists. They broke the rules of painting and brought a fresh new way to paint and see things. In this class we will learn some of their techniques and points of view like pointillism, the observation of light movement, and what happens when you let your eyes mix the colors rather than the painter. his is surely a class for those wanting to learn more about painting.

WET INTO WATERCOLOUR

One of the lovely things about painting with watercolour is using a technique called wet into wet which gives you such soft and illuminating results. No other painting media can do for you what watercolour wet into wet does. It can even do some of the colour mixing for you. Come and explore different aspects of this technique that will amaze you. The most glorious sunsets, the most interesting clouds, the most translucent waters, and the soft edges of a furry animal are just a few images that no other media can produce like this one. You will love this technique. Supply list available.
