Why does Jason think this course would be of value to you as a watercolour painter ?

Many modern effects in watercolour painting are created using additional materials to brush and paint. For example, marks can be created by scoring, scraped or bruising the paper when the watercolour paint is wet or dry with a blade. Gaining experience with a variety of novel painting tools enables you to recognise how artists have created artworks from the past and present, and helps you think in new ways how to construct your paintings. But, most of all, it’s fun to do.

Learn how to use a wide range of tools and materials including:







Bubble wrap






Cling film





Baking paper






Silver foil






Masking fluid






Palette knife






Stretch your imagination and understanding of the potential of watercolour to help you to paint anything from detailed paintings of texture to abstracts.


What will you need to bring to the first session?

Watercolour paper 


Water pots



Masking tape


Drawing board.

Cling Film
