Watercolour Creatures

57 TUTOR: Kevin Scully

During the week we will be painting animals both wild, and not so wild. The emphasis will be on capturing the essence of a variety of creatures ranging from the delicate and colourful to the wild and fearsome, and a lot of others in between. We will be examining movement and gestures and the emphasis will be on loose and spirited brushwork. From photographic reference, you will have the opportunity to portray such diverse animals from a flamingo to a grizzly bear, and from a domestic cat to a tiger. You will be able to paint those that interest you, and you will be given plenty of demonstrations and encouragement along the way. A course for all levels of experience.

Course Notes

This course is all about investigating the possibilities of using watercolour in an exciting and unconventional way. The vast range of species on this planet provides excellent visual inspiration and scope for material where colour and movement will be at the forefront, so be prepared for some wild experimentation with some vibrant colour!

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.
