In this informative workshop, Barry will walk you through how to paint this lovely view of the British countryside and its myriad of greens together… and the best part is that you will be painting this scene without a single green in our palette!

All the colours you will be using are transparent or semi transparent and Barry will show you how you can glaze successive colours over each other and develop dark and luminous sections without MUD.

Recommended materials

• 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. At this stage 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.

TIP: It’s a good idea to have your paper taped down onto your board and your preliminary drawing done ready for the start of the session.

• PAINTS: Artists quality watercolours as you will be wanting maximum transparency in your colours and the cheaper brands add binders and fillers to keep prices low .
