COURSE DESCRIPTION : Fluent English spoken
The Course is for all levels, and in small groups to enable individuals to feel at ease, share and gain the most from the course.
Discovery of the water, how to let it fuse, how to “manage” it, with a real wet on wet approach.
Learn how to mix the colours, learn how to know one’s pallet and learn how to use it to obtain depth and transparent shades and tones.
How to obtain fluid watercolours, light but dynamic, how to compose form and depth, contrasts, and an equilibrate composition with a good balanced drawing. There are many facets to achieve a beautiful water-painting.
The course, will enable you to learn how to paint various subjects, as well in the Studio: flowers, fruits, (apricots, peaches,.) as outside : beautiful villages, views and landscapes.
How to capture the beautiful landscapes, how to transmit one’s painting and all its light, almost its fragrance! This will be our approach during the course, which aims to be relaxed, pleasant and friendly, where each person can work at one’s own rhythm, its own level and in the respect of each individual.
