Loose and simple seascapes

Kennaway Centre, Exmouth

Who is this course for?

This course is for both absolute beginners who would like to explore the simplest techniques of watercolour painting and for those who wish to build on basic core skills. The sessions will be relaxed, friendly and supportive.

Course content

We’ll be looking at William Turner’s colour pallet and use of light and dark contrasts. You will then be creating loose watercolour washes on paper to produce atmospheric landscapes and seascapes.

You will be layering tones to add depth to your final painting.

Support and feedback

Learners will get individual support and feedback from the tutor. Group conversations about project ideas will be encouraged.

Additional costs and requirements

All basic materials are provided at the session. This will include brushes, watercolour paints and paper. If learners wish to extend their range of supplies they can bring their own watercolour materials.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?
