Learn to paint a watercolour wreath - with a festive twist if you fancy! - with me in this online creative class. By the end of the class you’ll be confident in painting a range of different types of foliage and composing a simple wreath - perfect for some hand-painted Christmas presents! After some demonstrations from me and some exercises together, we will begin our own paintings based on some seasonal leaves and flowers. Please feel free to bring your own foliage for inspiration!
This workshop is perfect if you have a basic understanding of watercolour - for example, if you've previously practised with paints or joined my 'watercolour for beginners' class. If you're new to watercolour, you are welcome to join, just be prepared to dive straight in!
- Two hours of my tuition, looking at different painting techniques for different types of foliage and flowers - together with discussion about brushstrokes, some colour mixing, layering and blending - before creating our own watercolour wreaths based on some seasonal foliage and flowers.
- A PDF class booklet – ideally printed, or used via a screen during the class on a laptop. The PDF will be sent by email in plenty of time before the start of the class - and can be used for guidance in the future too!
- A set of watercolour paints. I’d recommend Winsor & Newton Sketcher’s Pocket Box – of 12 pans. This is a great place to start!
- A selection of synthetic paintbrushes – ideally in a range of sizes, with a round tip. I’d recommend a size 2 and a size 4.
- Some cold pressed watercolour paper – whichever size you can get your hands on. I favour Daler Rowney paper but feel free to find whichever paper fits your budget best
- A jar of clean water (or two!)
- Something to use as a palette – a white ceramic plate would be perfect
- A few sheets of kitchen roll
- A pencil
The class will be hosted via Zoom and you will receive an invitation to the class in advance, by email. You’ll need to have access to Zoom on a laptop, iPad or your phone. I’d recommend the bigger the screen the better so you can see me well!
* I love the idea of more than one person from the same home taking this class together - but I do ask that you purchase the correct number of tickets (one per person) - to ensure I can give everyone individual attention *
I can't wait to see what we create together!
