Course Description

This workshop is suitable for you whether you have some experience of watercolour and would like to explore new techniques, or are a complete beginner. After playing with colour and the techniques, you’ll be guided step by step to create an atmospheric painting of a gorgeous sunflower to take home with you. You'll explore some easy to use techniques (cling film, salt and spatter) as well as practising more traditional washes and wet on wet painting. Our focus will be to create a painting with atmosphere, drama and contrast. All materials are provided so you just need to bring yourself. The focus of the workshop is very much on play and exploration - come and enjoy a fun morning with wonderful watercolour. The workshop runs from 10am to 1 pm and takes place in the main gallery of Helmsley Arts Centre, where you will be surrounded by inspiring art. There is a lovely cafe on site for refreshments. Ione is an landscape artist and tutor with over 30 years' teaching experience. Her aim in the workshop is for you to be supported to develop confidence and skill in using the wonderful medium of watercolour.
