About the workshop

Say good-bye to the wishy-washy watercolour techniques of yesteryear and unlock the world of contemporary watercolour in this workshop!

Over 2.5 days with Annette you will explore new and imaginative ways of using colour, learn how to exploit the transparent qualities of watercolour for maximum vibrancy and master a variety of free-flowing techniques.

Using a photo reference that reflects the theme of our winery surroundings, Annette will demonstrate her approach to interpreting a subject with spontaneity and flare.  You will gain a range of new skills and be inspired to create your own painting that reflects your unique expression.

Designed to accommodate all levels from beginners to advanced, this workshop aims to create a relaxed environment in which you can learn and share-in the joys of contemporary watercolour painting.
