Workshop Details

"Red Caps"

In this workshop Jeremy will explore wet-in-wet, wet on dry, and damp on dry watercolour techniques. This is a valuable step by step watercolour workshop for people of any ability. Colour-mixing, and colour and tonal contrasts throughout the painting is given by this demonstration, as well as overcoming common mistakes and problem-solving in watercolour. With over thirty years of teaching experience Jeremy is well qualified to help you to learn and enjoy painting in a friendly, informal atmosphere. You'll come away with a new skill, new knowledge and a sense of pride with a wonderful piece of work.
