Description

Students often say to me, 'I wish I understood more about colour mixing.' Well this is your opportunity to get to grips with it in a particular way. It will help you look at it from a hole different way.

Not the most exciting of pictures but you will learn a lot

Here you will use Magenta, CyanYellow and  some black.

With the aid of screen printing techniques, years ago, printers were able to produce all the colours for printed matter. Some of you may already be familiar with these colours depending on the type of printer you use at home. But have you ever thought about painting with them in watercolour?

It is the ultimate colour mixing process and will set you up for any other colour mixing you will want to do.


This watercolour painting will also help you to look analytically at a view and see how to enhance it to make it more interesting to the viewer, and by using such a limited palette you will become more aware of the importance of colour values.

So have a go, share your results and comments and enjoy your painting.

  • Why choose one of my courses?

    Because, as a self taught artist I understand how a lot of people feel about their creative work, sometimes anxious, sometimes overwhelmed and often that it's not 'good enough'. I will hold your hand as you overcome these fears as I offer a friendly, relaxed and sensitive teaching style.

    I also have years of experience of teaching people of all levels both in person and via the internet.

Enjoy your painting, love Nicola

As the pencil marks are very light I thought I would put in some hedgerows at this stage, so you can better see what I am doing.

If you have a mount or matt beyond salvation, cut it in two and use it to look at you work in progress. It helps you take a more objective view.

It will help you not only decide how you might want to frame it, but also to check for any changes you might want to make to the composition or colour values.
