Watercolour Landscapes - The Colours of Autumn
Level 3 to 6
Instructor:Shelley Prior
Mondays, 1pm to 4pm

In this class you will focus on painting our fall landscape in all its glorious splendor. Get inspired by the intense colours of fall foliage, and discover how lights and darks work together to create a center of interest in your work. Shelley will show you how the illusion of light in a painting adds drama, mood and movement. Understand how composition, perspective, and texture produce lively watercolours that reflect the vibrancy of the season. Bring your own photos of fall, or work from Shelley’s reference materials. Demos and lots of one-on-one instruction.

Painting Rocks in Water
Thursday/Friday, October 18/19
10am-4pm
Our reference will be a lovely little landscape with stones at the water’s edge. (It will be a bit different than the example shown here).
Learn to create the look of dry, wet and underwater rocks. Discover how to create that look of water getting deeper and what happens to the water’s reflective surface. We will analyse our reference image to fully understand it and then break down the painting process into manageable steps to create amazing depth and realism. We will be using several techniques including washes, layering and textural effects.
