Watercolour with Greg Allen


Watercolour Wizardry

Medium: Watercolour
Skill: Beginners to intermediate
Materials: $200 – $250*

This is you opportunity to learn from one of the best watercolour artist’s in Australia!

Watercolour is often regarded as just too hard and misunderstood but it can be all things to all people if you understand its chemistry.

In with workshop you will learn to tame the paint in order to achieve realistic pieces, but you’ll also learn how to unleash the mediums power, enabling you to paint impressionistically or emotionally.

During this 7-day program you will start with realism by painting a small number of controlled landscapes and seascapes, with lectures and demonstrations aiding the methodologies.

After you have loosened up you will paint more freely and more liberally using stronger colour and black inks. Then to finish you will work with images and ideas that suggest a contemporary, modern approach to watercolour.

This workshop will be like a box of mixed chocolates – you get to taste all possibilities!
