Description Long

After scooping up awards in our very own Open Exhibition we are extremely happy to welcome artist Diana Boanas to the festival as a workshop leader in 2020.

Participants will learn how to use variation of line and tonal values to describe transparent and shiny objects in watercolour.

This workshop is aimed at artists who have some watercolour experience, will take the form of two exercises and is based on tonal values rather than specific colour.

If you have a little or a lot of watercolour experience, come and spend an enjoyable two hours discovering techniques for painting convincing textures. We will explore the mixing and layering of dark colours, which will bring your work to life.

What you need to bring with you:

  • Good quality watercolour paper
  • Drawing board/pad/book (approx A4 size or larger sheet can be divided into several working areas)
  • Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Indigo and or French Ultramarine , Alizarin Crimson and a basic variety of primary watercolours
  • large round brush size 10 or larger, a 5 or 6 round and a rigger or finer sized watercolour brush
  • Kitchen roll
