SU217 – Watercolour Tempestuous Seascape

£36 + Booking Fee

All Seating


Jul 09


In this busy day you will create a loose and luminous watercolour of a rocky beach scene using Catherine’s “gravity painting” techniques. Apply colour ‘wet-in-wet’ and watch it flow beautifully to resemble translucent waves. Contrast this with thick, darkly textured rocks for drama and leave sharply contrasting areas of dry, white paper to depict ‘white horses’ against the distant coastline.

Follow Catherine’s plan to paint with confidence and watch her step-by-step demonstrations to create a colourful ‘masterpiece’ to take home.
Please check the website for suggested materials.
