For outdoor painting, you will need a wide brimmed hat and bottles of water. The water is both to drink and to paint with. Portable easels are provided by your tutor, Kirstin White.

Your pack should include three basic watercolours. Kirstin prefers Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours, and so specifies watercolour tubes of:- 1. Winsor Yellow, 2. Permanent Rose and 3. Winsor Blue (Green Shade). You will also want a red sable brush size 12, and also a smaller brush of around a size 4. Bring a daisy well mixing pallet, with large sections, so the you can easily get sufficient water onto your watercolour paper during summer conditions.

In the spring term, when the weather is suitable we will make the most of our wonderful Hampshire venues and venture outside to work. The studio bases will remain open whenever you want a break, with tea and coffee always available.

In less clement weather, we will discover new tips, tricks, and techniques as well as review our progress so far and learn from one another’s painting experiences.

Classes follow Hampshire County School Holiday Dates. If you cant make this set, our next half term starts the week beginning 6th June 2022.

Lovely Watercolour Landscapes

Lovely watercolour landscapes by members of my art classes. We combined elements of a photograph that I took while in Devon, with design inspiration from oil paintings by the Scottish Colourist, J. D. Fergusson (1874 – 1961).

If you would like to join a weekly class, or perhaps come to a Saturday workshop, please get in touch. 🙂
