In this workshop Fauzia invites art lovers, participants and students alike to let their guards down and paint from the soul. Fauzia will be showing watercolour techniques of painting florals using some of the best art materials available today and will be using complimentary colours to highlight balanced techniques. She will focus specifically on how to maintain transparency in watercolour with distinct composition - accuracy in colour mixing, blending, tips on skill development and building self confidence as an artist. You will also be shown the use of Luminescent Watercolour.

Fauzia is the first artist from Bangladesh to have her work selected and exhibited by the Royal Institute watercolour society in 2019, at the Mall Galleries UK. Fauzia looks forward to welcoming you to her workshop.
