Painting Outside the Lines

27 TUTOR: Kevin Scully

This course offers you the chance to put some extra zip into your watercolours by throwing caution to the wind and abandoning any pre-conceived ideas about the recognised way in which the medium should be used. As well as using watercolour, we will be introducing a few other materials into the mix in an endeavour to create some lively and colourful paintings. The aim is to experiment with the medium so that you can make up your own mind about what works for you. You will also be encouraged to think outside the lines. There are no holds barred! A course for all levels of experience and all materials will be provided.

Course Notes

This course is all about investigating the possibilities of using watercolour in an exciting and unconventional way, and as happens with most experimentation (and especially with watercolour), you will be likely to experience both success and failure. But undoubtedly, the successes will greatly outnumber the failures!

As well as using watercolours you will have the opportunity to use some other mediums including ink.

Your successful pictures will be displayed at the end of the week Friday afternoon exhibition.

All materials will be provided, but please bring along any other images that you would like to work from. If you have any favourite brushes or other painting equipment, you might like to bring these with you also.

You will be working from reference material provided by the tutor where you will be able to choose the kind of images and objects that interest you. There will be a number of paintings on display demonstrating a wide range of styles and techniques to inspire you. There will also be demonstrations of different techniques throughout the week, and you can be assured of plenty of individual attention.
