Enrol in Japanese Sumi-e & Watercolour - East Meets West
Course Code: ARTS0724
Please note: Japanese Brush Painting levels I and II are required to participate in this course. Japanese Brush Painting IIl would be an asset but is not absolutely necessary.
This course is designed to expand your creative horizons and introduce you to numerous fascinating and expressive watercolour methods that will harmonize with the art of Japanese Brush Painting. Instruction will include composition, design, western watercolour and further oriental brush techniques, interesting subjects blending traditional with non-traditional, textures, colour mixing, colour values to achieve depth, background washes, and spontaneous wet-in-wet explorations. Engage in stimulating exercises and practice techniques that can be expressed in an abstract or a more representational approach, with an overlying impressionistic personal style. Explore transparent florals, landscape elements with textured rocks and trees, lake scenes and quiet streams. Individual attention will assist and encourage you to find your personal creative voice.
