In this watercolour workshop you will have the opportunity to work with local accomplished watercolorist, Clive Powsey.
This workshop will explore glazing with transparent colour. Depending on how quick you are, you will paint one or several watercolours over the course of the day. You will explore a face as subject matter, which will be painted in a monochrome grisaille, paying careful attention to the effect of light and shade describing form. Subsequently local colour will be glazed onto the dry painting bringing together the full effect of light and shade, local colour, and texture. The dramatic use of light describing form on a human face and imparting psychological depth was used extensively in the European oil painting tradition.
As a result of these experiments you will learn about rendering form in paint and will be particularly aware of some of watercolours unique strengths. You will be able to repeat the concepts behind these painting exercises at home using similar subject matter.
