Hilary is a great watercolour artist and teacher and the class is suitable for abilities.

Contemporary Watercolours Course 
Starting on April  24th 
1.00- 3.00 pm

This course is will give you the opportunity to explore watercolour techniques in a contemporary style. Together we will look at the work of some contemporary watercolourists, examine their methods then you will utilise these within your own work. The emphasis will be on the pleasure of painterly effects and bold colour combinations to create a body of work that reflects a greater understanding of the magic of watercolour painting. 

This course is suitable for all levels, however all participants will need their own watercolours preferably Winsor & Newton artists colours - student colours are ok, but not always so strong. 

 Suggested choices are:
warm yellow - Winsor Yellow       cool yellow - Aureolin
warm red - Scarlet Lake                  cool red - Permanent Rose
warm blue - Indanthrene                cool blue - Manganese

Best to have  a warm and cold of each primary, and tubes as they are  better for mixing large quantities of wash.  Two large brushes (size 10 minimum) and at least 10 sheets of 200lb NOT paper half imperial 22" x 15" available from Artcetera in Boscombe, Hobbycraft or online. You will also need a small sketchbook, waterproof fine liner and a 2b pencil.
