For this workshops we'll be painting a summer scene with a flowering pohutakawa tree on the Kapiti coast. The base drawing will already be done for you, enabling you to focus on the joys of watercolour painting. We’ll start by painting the sky and applying free watercolour washes 'wet into wet' to create some soft edged clouds and then other watercolour techniques for the rest of the painting.
All materials provided, just turn up and leave 2 hours later with your own painting like this.
