workshops & classes

Watercolour can yield a variety of results that are uncompromisingly unpredictable and illusive.

Watercolour is a difficult medium to master at the best of times. Our Society run numerous workshops and classes throughout the year offering our members continuous opportunities to develop and enhance their skills. Opportunities exist for more general classes and other “taylored” learning courses.

There are various watercolour techniques to help adopt and it’s certainly a skill worth pursuing. The luminosity of watercolour can be truly magical.

A habit, a drug – yes it is both of these things and we are hooked for all time. We band of brothers. As a watercolourist, I create landscapes & seascapes; but also, guilty of still life, marine & animal life, limited portraits and detail studies. I love it all “
