About the workshop

This 4 day workshop is designed with the beginner and intermediate watercolour painter in mind. Over the four days the student will be exposed to the process I use to overcome the challenges faced when painting a variety of subject matter. By the end of the workshop the student will have developed a new sense of confidence in their ability to break down and simplify the subject, mix colour intuitively, select the right tool/technique, and begin to develop their sense of style.
