with Rob Wigham
We’ll be painting a watercolour view of the old sea breaks against the surf on this beautiful Moray beach.
10:30 – 4:30
All materials included
The one-day course will provide personalised instruction, mentorship and support for new or intermediate-grade watercolour painters, using a daytime view of the beach with some white clouds in the sky. This will allow us not only to produce a nice painting but will cover as many of the general aspects of watercolour as possible to make it a really useful day! No previous watercolour experience is necessary but Rob will try to work with you to make the most of whatever experience in the medium you might have already. We will work using a series of demonstrations of each stage, followed by your own painting of that stage. Rob will be on hand throughout with friendly advice and help so that hopefully everyone will produce an accomplished painting by the end of the day! No previous knowledge of watercolour is needed or assumed. Stretched watercolour paper of around A3 size or slightly larger on a suitable board will be required. If you have your own art materials, please bring them along as it will help you to work with your own things. However, the Moray Art Centre will supply a range of pigments and brushes as required if you don’t already have them.
