Landscape Watercolour Painting

Watercolourists have long been fascinated by the opportunities for painting presented by the landscape.

On this landscape painting course, you’ll explore the basic techniques of watercolour painting. This will include the use of washes, glazing and wet into wet painting.

References will be used for studio work and we will take the opportunity to paint directly outdoors. This structured course is suitable for beginners and for more experienced students.
