In this exciting prelude to his full, 2-3 hour workshop webinar, Barry will be exploring the theme of greens looking at the myriad of tones and colours. The best part is that you will be painting without a single green on your palette!


Barry will show you how you can glaze successive colours over each other and develop dark and luminous sections without MUD.

Purchase palette here from Jacksons (worldwide delivery) >


• PAPER: Tape a piece of watercolour paper , approx 6 x 7 ins, (or bigger), to a board or stiff card. Surface: Barry will be using ROUGH but NOT or Cold Pressed will also work well as there is a lot of texture in this scene. It would be a good idea to have a slightly larger piece of paper to work on as there would then be room to try out your colour mixes beforehand if you so wish.


• PAINTS: Artist quality watercolours if you can so you have maximum transparency in your colours and the cheaper brands add binders and fillers to keep prices low .
