Modern Watercolour Workshop (2 Weeks)

Modern Watercolour Workshop (2 Weeks)

This is a watercolour workshop with a twist on the fine art medium. Watercolours don’t have to be difficult, frustrating or inaccessible — expect plenty of fun and expression with this fluid medium!



This workshop will provide a structured approach to watercolours - we will cover an understanding of materials, blending/brush techniques and understanding colours. 
With the basic understanding of how these paints work, we’ll also explore some fun, “modern” styles of painting with watercolours.

 

No experience is required and all materials are provided.

  • What will I learn?

    Week 1: Botanical Blends!


    Welcome to the workshop! Watercolour is all about having fun pushing pigment and water around on paper. In this first session, we will start off by familiarising ourselves with the materials and then warm up with the basics of swatching, blending and fixing values to achieve watercolour effects.

We will move on to paint simple botanical elements such as petals, leaves and some simple wildflowers.

     

    Throughout this process, you’ll be able to practise your newfound watercolour skills and even pick up a tip or two on how to add more character and blends to your botanicals. 

Later, we will combine these loose elements to create a whole botanical collage! We will also explore basics of composition so you transform separate elements into a harmonious art piece.

     

    
By the end of this first lesson, you will be able to create your very own unique botanical collage artwork made up of the various petals, leaves and wildflowers painted in watercolours. 


     

    WHAT YOU’LL LEARN


    • Basic watercolour techniques, tips & tricks

    • An understanding of materials and choosing what works for you

    • Picking inspiration for botanical artworks

    • How to draw botanical elements such as leaves, petals and wildflowers (level up: do more advanced elements, such as garden insects, complex flowers… etc.)

    • How to build your colour palette such that all your botanical elements come together in harmony

    • How to compose your collage of these separate botanical elements for your final artwork

Week 2: Galaxy Night Sky

    Now that you’ve picked up some basics from week 1, we’ll start to have some fun creating bigger pieces of art! In this second lesson, we will paint a night sky scene. 
We’ll start off by exploring techniques such as flat washes, gradients and layers.

     

    We will slowly build up our night sky background by adding various colours of the galaxy and allowing all of the pigment and water to come together.

     

    We’ll play some more by exploring ways to create bigger paint bleeds, bigger patterns and textures.


     

    To decorate our night sky, I’ll teach you how to paint some other elements such as mountains and trees! This will also touch on brush stroke techniques learnt in the first lesson.

     

    
By the end of this lesson you would have created your own galaxy sky blend.
