Painting Apple Blossom – A Watercolour Day Class

Event description

10am – 3.30pm

Join watercolour artist Jane Austin for a full-day workshop painting the blossom in nature. Learn how to build background colour and tones with transparent layers of random marks, alternating from the warm and cool side of the colour wheel to create form, painting positive shapes, and creating soft highlights.
