Watercolour Light Effects with Nicolette Black

Watercolour Light Effects
With Nicolette Black

Wednesday 10am-12:30pm

14 August – 18 September 2019

Experiment with watercolour and its wonderful properties, exploring graduated washes, mingling, wet-in-wet, dry brush and spatter effects. Focusing on a different artist each week to investigate their treatment of light, we will explore skies and water as produced by J.M.W. Turner; solid shapes in the work of Jude Ray; light, dark and fire as produced by Tim Storrier; ultra realism as produced by Tess Mackay; insects and plants by Ex De Medici; and landscapes with Elioth Gruner.
