About the Event

Come join me and watercolour enthusiasts from around the world as I take you step by step through a live online watercolour tutorial. Viewers can watch, or join in and replicate the steps while I explain some basic watercolour techniques, tips and recommendations.

Cost: £20.00

Duration: 120 Minutes

Platform: Zoom

30mins - Technique Lesson: Sketching and Composition

90mins - Subject Painting: Main Portrait

If you'd like to join in, here are some items you'll need:

Paper -

36x28cm, I recommend a cotton based paper, 300gsm - personally I prefer Saunders Waterford, Arches, Fabriano or even Bockingford. I use masking tape to keep it still on a board, which also leave a clean, crisp border once removed.

Brushes -

Medium/Large Mop Brush - perfect for big areas such as sky and foregrond. Squirell hair is best as it holds the most water.

Medium Synthetic Brush - something with a fine point for medium sized areas and smaller details

Rigger Brush - a longer thin brush, perfect for branches, railings and long thin lines

Paint -

Chinese White

Ivory Black

Neutral Tint

Grey of Grey (opaque)

Cobalt Blue

Cadmium Yellow

Cadmium Red

Burnt Sienna

Raw Umber

Vandyke Brown

Sap Green

Horizon Blue (opaque)

I mix and match brands of paint between Holbein, Daniel Smith, Schminkie and Winsor & Newton

Other Equipment -

Water Pot - I usually use two, one to wash pigment out of a brush, a 2nd to load up with clean water

Atomiser - a fine mist water spray

Tissue - helps to dry a brush if needed, mop up drips

Hairdryer - to speed up the drying process

Pencil - for preliminary sketch

Palette - with several large wells  to ensure enough space for mixing
