Expressive Florabunda – 15th February
Tutor: Claire Barnett
Date: 15th February
Time: 10.30am – 4pm
Claire’s informal workshop combines demonstrations and practical work. It is for people with some experience and not complete beginners. However, as you work on your own paintings you can develop them to your own ability and individual and appropriate advice will be offered accordingly. The aim is to experiment, loosen up and develop exciting and expressive ways of mark making.
The emphasis will be on enjoying the process and not necessarily to create ‘finished’ paintings but to explore ideas and options. You will be encouraged to work loosely and use your imagination to create an atmospheric and expressive style with which to interpret flowers.
There will be lots of ideas and inspiration on offer for you to explore at the workshop or at home including how to change and transform your watercolour using opaque or other mediums. You will create a variety of different washes and unusual textures, stretching the boundaries of watercolour and other mediums. If you are ‘stuck’ or looking for ideas and inspiration with which to move your work in a new direction this is the course for you!
Demonstrations will be in watercolour with added ingredients on paper.
If for reasons beyond our control the class has to be cancelled, a full refund will be made.
