Focus will be on creating bold, fearless work, developing a sense of composition and colour using some contemporary methods and experimental techniques.
Paintings will be done mostly from photographs, which will be provided by email along with drawing and info on technique to be used, a day prior to the online class. Step by step demonstration and individual guidance will be provided. Videos recordings will be sent after each class. *Previous drawing and watercolour painting experience is must.
