This Advanced Beginners Watercolour Painting course is aimed at those looking to their watercolour painting to the next level and put their creative flair into practice. Your tutor will focus on the following new techniques each week:

Week 4- Skies and washes 2–Painting skies is a big subject given the infinite combinations of clouds and colours! This week will be a continuation of the previous session and give you the opportunity to practice skies in various scenarios.
Week 5- Painting Water-Painting water often poses challenges for artists in their early days, however it is an exciting subject to paint! There are several watercolour techniques that can be used when painting water and this will give you the opportunity to practise and build confidence in applying these techniques.
Week 6- Painting with a limited palette–In this session we will look at painting with a limited selection of colours, which when combined can provide a tremendous array of colours and versatility in your painting.
