Description

Module 2 in the Creative Watercolours Course is here!

In this module we will be getting into more creative techniques and aiming to get more controlled effects.

The course is taught using demonstrations on video. There are also photos and drawing guides for you to use as you need.

There are 3 main projects plus an informative lesson extra. Each project is a lesson split into 2 or more parts to keep the stages easy to follow.

We will be exploring vibrant colours and controlled wet-into-wet techniques, complementary colours and an example of how to use them in a painting, and more textures in watercolour and how to create them in a beautiful autumn woodland painting.

The lesson extra is a demonstration of how to create depth and aerial perspective in a painting.

The course ends with some inspiring ideas for you to try and a little quiz to test your knowledge.

I'm postitive you will enjoy these lessons as much as my class students have done here in England.

Enjoy, and I'll see you in the first lesson.

To enjoy the promotional price of $9 (normally $29) sign up in the first few days of December 2014.

         "Inspiring Creativity in Art" 

            I regularly work with people who struggle to get really creative with their painting. My lessons and workshops are fun, inspiring and informative and I enjoy teaching others about the techniques I use in my own artworks. I specialise in creating texture in acrylics and watercolour paintings using different techniques. 

       I am a British artist living and working in the beautiful county of Suffolk, UK. 

            My artworks include acrylic, watercolour and mixed media, on canvas, wood and paper, available in contemporary galleries in UK.
