Following his hugely successful drop in sessions at ArtWaves 2018 you can join artist John Harrison in a three hour workshop, an introduction to his unique style and techniques for creating line and wash drawings with carefully selected watercolour washes for truly beautiful results.

The workshop will include simple drawing exercises in drawing to set the tone of the session; handling the pen, working with loose wet-in-wet washes and leading onto the creation of a masterpiece in Johns 'style’.

Enjoy a relaxing and easy going workshop that will mix up your typical drawing style.

  • Watercolour paints
  • Good quality watercolour paper (ideally a rough finish in 300g)
