Workshop: Monarch of the Glen with Liz Chaderton

Join professional artist, Liz Chaderton to paint a magnificent stag in watercolour. This was filmed live on 20th Aug 2020.

In this 2-3 hour masterclass you will learn how to identify the essence of your subject and to ensure your composition captures its character. You will work wet in wet and adjust your initial washes with further glazes. You will apply texturing techniques to a subject in a way which does not become cliched and learn how to exploit the emotion of colours.

The reference photo, guidance on composition and a possible outline drawing are attached to help you prepare for the class.
