I think we've all become a little more familiar with Zoom this last year or so.  Whilst we love teaching and demonstrating in person, there have definitely been plenty of positive reasons for moving things on to Zoom.

The first being that we can stay in our own homes and watch the whole thing in our own environment with a cup of tea (or something stronger depending on where you are in the world at the time), and if we fall asleep halfway through, no one needs to know!...

 

....but more seriously, Zoom demos in many ways allow the viewer to be closer to the action; seeing the brushstrokes more closely and certainly getting a much better view of the colours being mixed. Very important factors of painting that can get lost in a larger setting.

The Demo

In this particular demo, we will be looking at capturing the beauty and wonderful shape of one of our stunning garden birds. with a real emphasis on using colour, form and value to depict our chosen subject in a fresh and ultimately enjoyable way.

It's amazing what we can cover in 2 hours. We will look at all of the below (and more)

  • At least one painting; showing how various colours harmonies and values create the depth and beauty of one of our stunning garden birds.

  • All the materials - including colours and their properties

  • Techniques for watercolour from wet into wet to dry brush and everything in between

  • Paint consistency: the one thing above all else that I believe is the "secret" to watercolour - and its applications

  • Colour mixing

  • Creating big bold brushstrokes and small detailed strokes.

  • Where to let loose a little and where to bring in more refinement

  • How to interpret our subject - what to put in, what to leave out

  • How to capture the essence of what we see

  • Capturing light & shadow - creating form by using the language of colour.

I very much welcome questions typed into the chat throughout the demo. I do my best to answer as we go but I will also open up the floor to "Questions and Answers" if people want to un-mute (at the end of the first half and the end of the demo)

Sit back and watch, or paint along with me!  You will be sent an email ahead of the evening with reference images and PDF materials list and notes. You will be sent a link afterwards to able to watch the demo at a later date for up to 7 days, 

Please not that this demo is a little more demanding on the drawing aspect, 

Tickets are paid in full and non-refundable. You will be emailed a PDF document on how to use Zoom and a reminder of the overall format of the demonstration, along with the reference photo and PDF notes, and the meeting ID and password.

You will need to be able to run or download Zoom on your device. 

These demos are always great fun and I do my absolute best to jam-pack them with lots of useful information, tips and advice. Hopefully leaving you feeling inspired to go and pick up those brushes!!!
