S1-202A: Capturing the Light in Watercolour
Mondays, 1pm to 4pm

In the course Shelley goes beyond the basics of paint application, and teaches you painting techniques to add the luminous qualities of light in your art. You will create stronger paintings by gaining a better understanding of how to produce and capture the beauty of light. Know how to use light and dark values effectively, how to add visual movement and value/colour relationship, all of which contribute to the mood of the painting and the emotional response of the viewer. Demos and individual critiques.
