Learn how to paint quick and expressive watercolours with fewer brush strokes. Working with large size brushes (sizes 12 or 16) adding shape against shape stroke by stroke and almost never going over same area twice and in the process, leaving large areas of paper untouched. Our aim will be to create atmosphere rather than strictly copy the subject matter by using a limited palette, oversimplifying shapes and avoiding adding too many details .To broaden our skills, we will learn how to paint people and animals. Starting with a very basic pencil sketch and later throughout the course, no pencil at all, painting directly with brush . This approach is fun, rather quick and gives painting that fresh and spontaneous look.
