Creative Watercolours for Beginners- Evening Class with Louise Banks

The Day the Cornish Cutters Sailed Away £320 .jpg

“Watercolour is not just a technique: It is an attitude.

..For me, the secret to using watercolour lies in the balance between control and letting go.”


On this course you will be exploring the unique properties of watercolour in a relaxed, friendly setting.

All abilities are welcome, the only requirement is a

willingness to experiment with materials and have an inquisitive mind!

All materials, including watercolour sketchbooks, are provided.

This sketchbook-based approach is to experiment, understand and enjoy the medium before embarking on a sustained painting. With guidance your own creative research can develop into loose, expressive studies.

As the artist Sheinberger says – “

Watercolour tends to do what it wants, therefore the secret is to

strike a balance between control and letting go.”

The Spring 4 week evening course will be a creative step by step approach.

Week 1; colour theory and experimentation (inspired by the Bauhaus artists), looking at the creative

possibilities of using a limited colour palette, abstract wet on wet methods.

Week 2; transparent colour glazes and layers, abstract wet on dry methods.

Week 3; resist methods (masking fluid and wax)

Week 4; learning about composition and loose line and wash (watercolour, pen and ink). Bringing it all together on stretched paper in a final painting.

Throughout the course we will be referencing the

water theme: Waterscapes, the Lympstone

shoreline, light, reflections, seashore plants, seaglass and shells. Much of our work will be in developing techniques that capture the translucency of water. We will also be using poetry as a

springboard for visual effects. The emphasis will be on working in an abstract way with colour and trying to achieve translucent

washes before applying line. Along with Watercolour works by William Turner we will also be looking at the playfulness of Paul Klee, the new movement of contemporary watercolour artists such as Alf Lohr, Barbara Nicholls and what the urban watercolourists have to offer seascape painters.

Tutor Louise Banks studied at Goldsmiths’ College London, has taught art for over 30 years in schools and adult education centres, shown work regularly at the Mall Galleries, London

and worked in illustration.

Big Skies - Using Acrylics

with Nic George 

Nic will be demonstrating the techniques that he uses to create his dramatic seascapes and Dartmoor landscapes. We will have the opportunity to explore these approaches and discover the potential for using acrylic paint to formulate ‘Big Skies’. Nic will examine the potential for creating compositions which have a much larger proportion of sky to land / sea. Besides his own work, Nic will also be sharing a range of artists that have influenced his work and how they have tackled the theme of ‘Big Skies’ to great effect.

 The workshop will be a great opportunity to try different approach to thinking about landscape and the influence a big sky can have over the overall effect of a painting.

Date and Time:

Thursday 19th October


Cost : £40
