14th April Revealing the Masters in Watercolour & Pastels with Susanna Bailey
Revealing the Masters in watercolour & pastels
Saturday 14th April
With Susanna Bailey
10am – 4pm
Learn the art of colour mixing through the work of Monet and Rothko.
This course is an interesting mix of Art History and practical painting and drawing skills.
Experienced tutor, Susanna Bailey, will guide the group in exploring the later work of Monet and his influence on Mark Rothko. Take a close look at the colour palettes used by both artists, have a go at colour mixing and adapt your new skills into landscapes and waterscapes. Rothko took colour into another, abstracted, direction and the group will have the chance to experiment with these techniques themselves.
Working directly from picture book references, you will work up sketches in pastel, in the same way that Monet did. Learn about traditional techniques that are still relevant in artistic practice today.
This course is underpinned with historical and visual examples of both painters work. Susie will lead demonstrations throughout the day, and give plenty of one to one tuition. In all of Susie’s courses her main objective is to build confidence and have fun!
