What’s it all about?
Modern Still life – So let’s grab something from the pantry (a can of Campbell’s soup perhaps?) Now, we’re going to sit together, draw, ink and watercolour your modern still-life, learning about watercolours and composition as we go.
Emilie will guide you through the process, offering tips and advice on how to use watercolours for observational illustration.
What will we cover?
This beginner’s painting class will focus on using watercolour and illustration skills.
We’ll cover observation drawing and composition and learn the basic of watercolour paints through a playful approach, and you will achieve your first stay at home watercolour still-life illustration!
FYI – You are welcome to bring items with you if you like, or you can use objects from the studio as subject mater.
