Autumn Courses

Here we are at the end of October and the colours of Autumn are upon us. We have hosted a weekend and five day course with the dominating theme of autumn.
Emphasising the importance of using transparent colours we focused on the gorgeous colours of fallen leaves.
The aim to capture the rich burnt browns, oranges and greens found on the fallen and rotting leaves. Wow did we have fun!

We are hosting two more courses In November, a weekend 8th – 19th and a five day 10th – 15th, we will be continuing to explore the Autumn theme exploring rich strong colour in watercolour.
As we head in to a dramatic winter landscape we use of a Charcoal to capture the lack of colour and drama of Dartmoor, the trees and skies. Fancy a creative weekend? There are a few places left.
