Join Liz Chaderton for Part 2 of an engaging, free online webinar on Tue 18th August at 2pm (UK time). All ages welcome. Approx 45min. Watch part 1 below.
In this class we will continue to explore how to create the illusion of textures in watercolour. You will come away with a tool box of different techniques you can apply in future paintings, whatever your favourite subject.
Part 1 was highly interactive and we ran out of time! Part 2 will enable us to finish what we started!
Using materials you will find around the house or studio, learn how to create interesting textures in your watercolour. You will also learn some of the pitfalls to avoid. This is an opportunity to experiment, so bring a sense of fun and imagination!
