I love working in watercolour its an incredible medium with so many possibilities, and I am really pleased to be running this 10 week course that will introduce you to some of my methods and techniques. Its incredibly versatile with its translucent properties but also its intensity – I want to dispel some of the fear surrounding it and introduce you to ways of working that you can use and have confidence with in your own work. When the weather is good we will get out in the landscape and make sketches that we can work on in the studio. We will also be looking closely at flowers and working with various techniques, learn how to bring a spontaneity and freshness to painting them that reflects their individual nature and beauty. The class will be kept to a maximum of 7 to allow for individual tuition. Because the group is small I can teach to all abilities. Above and below are some examples of my work in watercolour.
10 am – 2.30
The dates …..
11 sept – 18 sept – 25 sept – 2 oct – 9 oct – 16 oct – 6 oct – 13 oct – 6 nov – 13 nov – 20 nov
” I have just finished a series of painting classes with Karen which achieved my aim, to refresh skills and enthusiasm for my own work. Karen is a very good teacher, generous with her knowledge and skills, and gave individual attention as needed. She provided many examples of artists’ work to illustrate her teaching points.
We were a small, friendly group, working in Karen’s own studio. The lovely Cotswold setting enhanced the pleasureof working there, studying for example, colour theory, and various techniques for developing a painting.We were kept well-nourished with tea and biscuits, and Karen’s passion for art to nourish our aesthetic appetites.
Highly recommended. ” Heather
