Watercolour Art 2019 in Eastbourne

Let your creativity out to play!

Whether you’re a complete beginner or have some experience and would like more help to refresh your skills, my new 10-week course may be of interest to you.

Watercolour allows a freshness and immediacy that is both useful and attractive to many artists and has been for centuries. This course is aimed at building your skills and confidence in watercolour painting in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. With professional instruction and guidance, you can discover how to create your own successful range of paintings. The course will walk you through the process from the beginning. You will practise the fundamental techniques involved in paint application, and experiment with a variety of brushes and tools. We will look at the role of drawing and the observational techniques that provide the scaffold to most artwork, as well as composition, colour theory, brush techniques, washes, wet on wet, wet on dry, layering, and colour mixing amongst other things.

Beginning Friday 20th September 2019 from 10 am to 12:30 pm in The Garden Studio at 1 Granville Road, Eastbourne, BN20 7EB.  Materials not included.

      This six week term is running from mon 14th/thu 17th and for this one I’m going for the same theme throughout – mixed media

      Kind regards, Gill

  1. Hi Gillian,

    Can you tell me if you are running any courses, I would like to book my wife some watercolour lessons with yourself for her birthday.

    Kind regards
