Take inspiration from a still life and explore the possibilities of one of the oldest and most versatile of mediums. Join Wendy to experiment with handling and mixing of colours, to create a series of artistic responses to a still life. Wendy will go through the methods in arranging objects that will produce an eye-catching artwork. She will also describe the various techniques she uses in her own work.
- Watercolour paper: three or four sheets
- Masking tape
- Water pot (large yoghurt pot is ideal)
- Watercolour Brushes. You don’t need the best quality. Include one or two larger sizes – a number 6 or 8
- Gouache paint – the best is Winsor and Newton’s Designer’s Colour. The minimum colours you will need are the primary colours (red, blue and yellow) and white. Ideally a warm and a cool version of each primary eg: Alizarin and Spectrum red, Primary and Ultramarine Blue and Lemon and Cadmium yellow would be better but not essential.
- Some absorbent paper (kitchen roll).
