Online Art Course: Watercolours


Art Workshop online Watercolours course shows you how to explore and become confident with water-soluble materials such as pencils, paints and inks. Allowing water to be used to manipulate these materials gives you an opportunity to drip, dribble or spray around a surface. By understanding the boundaries of each media can give you handles to hold onto to achieve more options for its use. Develop some watercolour techniques that could enhance what you might already know or give you a fresh approach to your own style of working with watercolour.

Spray, dribble, flow, drag, wash, wet on wet, wet on dry, and dry brush are just some of the ways to develop techniques to begin introducing you to ways of working. You will gain a sense of confidence around decision making and each technique will be applied to create a visual example to be documented in your Visual Journal. These will then be taken further to explore the possibilities of larger waterworks. Learn how to develop themes and personal subjects and use these as starting points to create your own unique watercolour creations.

Two videos included in the workshop are designed to expand your repertoire of how to manipulate and utilise materials and surfaces. You will be shown some creative and easy ways to take your techniques and skills further. From starting points you create you begin to open up the possibilities for your own artwork.
