Thankfully, these beautiful animals are making a comeback to many rivers across the UK. In this workshop you will be exploring their playful nature. Liz will teach you about colour-value swapping, using masking fluid, letting the water work for you, using cling film/saran wrap for water and other techniques which will help you in all your animal paintings.
