SUMMARY

Watch Andrew’s workshop as he walks through the full process of his loose approach to watercolours from the developing of initial ideas and sketching, to the transfer of the drawing.


He chats about the concept of loose watercolours as you dive into the fun part of the painting getting the clouds and tones in position. You will also have a little side project to learn the techniques of brush work and strength and tones of your paints.


If you would love to get looser in your watercolours, be sure to join Andrew for this workshop!
