19 TUTOR: Colin Palmer
This is a new course specifically to teach beginner level techniques. The tutor will guide first-time painters through the process of painting in watercolour and encourage those who may have tentatively tried their hand before. He will take you through a number of set exercises, explaining and demonstrating each step along the way. You will also receive plenty of one-to-one tuition and gain many tips, perfected over the tutor's years as a professional architectural illustrator. He will cover perspective, skies and trees, the importance of shadows, colour mixing and much more. Towards the end of the week, there will be a chance to paint a building of your choice so please bring a photo.
This course is intended for those who wish to improve their ability to paint buildings using watercolour.
Exercises will be set during the week to be carried out in the classroom and at the end of the week you will have a number of paintings to be proud of.
Topics to be covered during the week include tools for the job, successful paper stretching, composition, colour mixing - who needs dozens of paints, how to paint those tricky windows, drawing techniques, perspective, trees, the importance of shadows and much more.
Colin will demonstrate techniques throughout the week, working closely with you to enable you to develop your skills.
All essential professional quality art materials will be supplied including top quality watercolour paper.
Please contact me through the Summer School office should you need any advice in advance of your week's course. All essential materials including a personal sketchbook will be provided.
