Breaking the Rules in Watercolour

3 TUTOR: Kevin Scully

Here is a chance for you to use watercolours in a loose, dynamic and expressive way. You will be encouraged to abandon many of the pre-conceived notions regarding the medium's limitations and will be given the opportunity to create paintings that are colourful, vibrant and on the wilder side of traditional watercolours. After all, rules are there to be broken! This course is suitable for all levels of experience in watercolours, including beginners. All art and reference 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!

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.

There will be a limited number of tabletop easels available, so if you like to work from one these please bring it along if you have one.

Kevin is professional artist and illustrator, and an experienced tutor.

If you would like any further information, please call Kevin Scully on 01635 200619 or 07765 867035, or email at:
