Watercolour is a magic potion…
Go with the flow and let it work its wonders!
July 4, 10am-3.30pm
In this Art Retreat, we’ll experiment with many non-traditional materials, barely picking up a brush, and responding to the beauties of One Garden with gusto.
If this mercurial medium has discouraged you in the past, please give it another chance . Today, you'll be given experimental methods and tricks of the trade , you’ll be amazed by what you can create..
And if you are new to watercolour, this is a great place to start a life-long love affair.
We'll start the day with a private tour of the beautiful front garden given by the fantastic head gardener, Pete.
Filled with fresh air and inspiration, we'll return to the studio to paint splashy and free to capture the essence of the vibrant garden. (This is NOT a botanical illustration class. Though there will be many techniques for realistic depictions of trees, etc, it's more about a looser and more personal creative expression of your response to this beautiful place.)
We'll enjoy a lovely lunch at One Garden Kitchen with a cheeky glass of local wine, and continue our painting through the afternoon, in the studio or garden, as you wish.
We'll finish with an appreciation of all our beautiful work and lots of ideas about how to proceed on your artistic journey.
