Mindful painting

2 Hours  Hands on workshop – $75

No experience necessary.

Create a piece of artwork using watercolour paints with one my own ‘Woodland Frieze’ colouring in designs printed for you on heavy watercolour paper.
I have 2 original line drawing designs featuring woodland imagery for you to choose from.

Colouring in with watercolour paints is a great way to become familiar with brush control and paint handling, without having to worry about the drawing side of things. You will learn about the transparent nature of watercolour paints as we go along. The line drawings I have created have a variety of colouring in spaces where different techniques can be practised.

Everyone paints at a different rate, you may finish your painting during the workshop or want to take things slowly, there’s no rush this is a fun and mindful process. You get to take home your paint kit as part of the workshop – so there’s no pressure, you can carry on at home. I provide a handout sheet to remind you of the simple techniques we will have covered.

No materials necessary, everything you need to create an artwork  will be provided at the workshop. Wear something comfortable that you don’t mind getting a little messy! This course is best suited to adults.

Watercolour paints are known for their translucency, this workshop is a great introduction to their amazing properties.
