SERIOUS BEGINNERS - ADVANCED
Jane is an award winning watercolour artist and a passionate teacher. She is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute and a member of the education committee for the Urban Sketchers organisation. She has a passion for sketching in line and colour that goes back over 40 years. In this workshop she will demonstrate tools and techniques to help you to gain confidence in sketching from life, whether for travel, urban sketching, botanical studies or just for fun. We’ll explore different sorts of pencils, pens and inks, create the perfect sketching watercolour palette, look at layouts and lettering and discover many ways to make wonderful sketchbook pages to create indelible memories of your travels and experiences. As it is cold in July, only some sessions will be held en plein air, most will be in the studio space, however appropriate clothing for outdoor sketching is important.. The workshop will include personalised palette consultations and is suitable for beginners or those with more experience.
