7th July Painting for the Positively Terrified with Susanna Bailey
Painting for the Positively Terrified
Saturday 7th July
With Susanna Bailey
10am – 4pm
If you find the idea of painting with watercolour a daunting prospect, then this is the workshop for you! Your tutor, Susie Bailey, who has taught this course at the Marlborough Summer School for many years will start with the basics, teaching you about what watercolour actually is and demonstrate how easy it can be for all. Whether you are a total beginner or have a bit of experience under your belt, this course will start from the beginning and set a solid foundation for future practice.
Susie will share her Top Tips for lifting out mistakes, developing shadow and the importance of leaving dry paper to act as a contrasting white. You will have the choice of creating a simple landscape, using photographs from Susie’s travels – or please bring your own! We will also have a still life set up in the studio to work from – the choice is yours!
The aim of the day is to leave with a painting you can be proud of, and have the confidence to begin a journey of painting which will give you much pleasure in years to come. There will be plenty of demonstration and one to one tuition throughout the day. We will have a short break for lunch – please don’t forget to bring a packed lunch!
