This great workshop provides you with the ideal opportunity to explore glorious Autumn painting one of your favourite Autumn subjects with a free and expressive painting approach.

Many students choose 'woodland', a 'leafy autumn lane' a 'Yorkshire village bathed in Autumn sunlight', 'a landscape view with lots of trees' or 'reflections in a river or lake' - just some of the subjects to choose from. You might have something completely different in mind in which case, bring that along and I will teach you how to paint it!

The Maimeri watercolour paints provided for you to use in the class are professional watercolour paints. The great range of colours and high permanation mean that colours in your paintings stay super clean and radient. They work really well on all sorts of different papers and surfaces to including the top class Canson Moulin du Roy Watercolour 100% cotton watercolour paper you will be working on during this workshop.

Combining watercolour glazes as radient layerers of paint finished with soft and hard pastel techniques, you will create a painting that not only teaches you watercolour techniques and colour mixing but pastel techniques too as you exploring many different creative and surface textured effects in your loose and expressive glowing Autumn painting.

Expert tuition teaching you indepth techniques with demonstrations, group and one to one tuition throughout the day using these professional watercolours and top class watercolour paper to help you create a painting full of expression, warm and glowing colours with real impact!
