Wonderful Watercolours at Gosport Discovery Centre

Wednesdays 28th February to 21st March 2018 

10.00am to 1.00pm

To enable learners to feel more confident in using watercolours in a loose and expressive way.

  • Understand that there are different ways to use watercolour paints
  • Use different techniques to create different effects
  • Use multiple layers of paint to build up your picture
  • Create at least three pieces of work using watercolours

Approachable sessions and activities to help you build your confidence and develop your skills in using watercolours expressively.

We will be looking at how to mix paint on the paper and will look at applying washes and paint to wet and dry paper. We will be using salt, clingfilm, water and other objects to create effects and develop our skills, as well as building up layers of paint in our work.

We will be using photos and images as inspiration during the course. Please bring a bird or animal photo/image to the first class. The tutor will advise you on other resources as the course progresses.

Basic drawing skills (i.e. shading, texture, highlights and shadows) will be helpful.

You will need:

  • A range of watercolour paints (pan or tubes are fine)
  • A range of drawing pencils (2B, 3B, 4B)
  • A4 pad of heavy weight watercolour paper (at least 220gsm)
  • Please also bring a water pot, cloth or kitchen roll, brushes and palette
  • A board or something to lean on (up to A3)
  • Salt
  • Clingfilm
  • Please bring a bird or animal photo/image to the first class

Please note that some of the techniques can get a bit messy. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting paint on. You may also find an apron useful
