Watercolour Painting - Advanced

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Watercolour Painting - Advanced

Course Code: ARTS0248

This course is not suitable for beginners. It is imperative that participants have had at least three previous watercolour courses prior to participating.
At an advanced level of interaction, you will explore traditional and experimental techniques in watercolour painting. Instruction will be provided on composition and design, and the course is geared to sharpen skills and enhance personal interpretation. Learn how to make a contour painting, how to layer washes until they get the right value and how to use local and colour values to make strong statements. Sessions on compositions will include directing the eye with edges, placing darks and other colours, and advice on handling patterns and loosening painting style. Learn by demonstration and critique and benefit from individual attention. While this is not a plein air course, there may be an opportunity to enjoy some on-location painting, weather permitting. Painting outdoors will be a majority decision. Only when there is enough consensus will there be an outdoor painting session.
