Old Workshops & Classes


13 AUG to 22 OCT 2018 
6.00pm - 9.00pm
14 AUG to 16 OCT 2018 
9.30am - 12.30pm

Please join me for 10 weeks of either MONDAY EVENING or TUESDAY MORNING Watercolour Classes at The HUB. Classes are suitable for beginners (with some prior experience) and intermediate artists.  
My classes are about taking you out of your comfort zone. About having fun with big brushes and big washes. We will follow a "holistic" "total picture" approach to our painting and develop techniques to simplify our subject matter. We will also explore ideas around colour, value and transparency. We'll learn about "leaving the white", about the importance of focal points for composition and the importance of colour contrasts. We'll cover a range of subject matter from landscapes, thought to seascapes and nautical themes and urban scenes.

We paint at
The Hub,140 Weller Road, 
Tarragindi QLD 4121
