Creative Watercolours for Beginners- Evening Class with Louise Banks
“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.” FELIX SHEINBERGER
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.”
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.
