About The Event
Materials and Information
A mystical and magical workshop which is both deliciously relaxing and inspiring at the same time. Because of the abstract nature of these beautiful floral forms, you cannot predict your blended outcome and instead must leave the infused colours to mix, mingle and do their magical work! During this workshop you will learn how to charge in colours, which colours work well together, fabulous fail safe colour mixing techniques, tips for creating both miniature and larger colour spreads, how to add/ take away subtle layers AND how to add the smallest of decorative elements to make your design really sing! It's highly addictive as there are so many lovely possiblities!
By using illustrative techniques, this workshop helps your watercolour abilities grow too! Use your botanical compositions for greeting cards and tags or in your sketchbook and journal art. If you're new to drawing and painting don't worry, this is a great place to start! I'll take through every stage sharing with you loads of tips, tricks and advice. If you've got more experience, you'll still learn something new as this style of painting is great for loosening up and having fun.
All abilities very welcome!
