Saturday 6th April 2019

Colourful & Expressive Birds & Animals

Watercolour & Acrylics

All abilities

We will be looking at creating loose and brushy birds and animals with no, or very minimal background.

Lovely bold brushstrokes, lots of wet into wet washes and lots of colour is the mission on this day.

All mixed with just the right amount of detail in a few select places

This approach works equally well with watercolour, acrylics and even inks.

Rather than aiming to complete just one painting in a day, we will be looking to keep things relatively fresh and quick, with hopefully at least 2 or 3 paintings throughout the day, as well as a couple of smaller warmup exercises that can often result in some really great finished results.
