PAINTING LANDSCAPES IN WATERCOLOUR WITH CLIVE POWSEY
In this watercolour workshop you will have the opportunity to work with accomplished watercolorist, Clive Powsey.
This workshop will explore two aspects of watercolour; glazing with transparent colour and mixing alla prima (wet on wet). You will likely paint two watercolours over the day depending on how quick you are. We will start with a monochrome grisaille landscape paying careful attention to the effect of light and shade on topography and ignoring local colour. Subsequently local colour will be glazed onto the painting bringing together the full effect of light and shade, local colour, and texture. Subsequent watercolours might use the same approach or be looser, wetter and more ‘alla prima’. Nevertheless, we will continue to try and pay attention to dividing the landscape into areas of light and shade.
As a result of these experiments you will learn about rendering form in paint and will be particularly aware of some of watercolours unique strengths. You will be able to repeat the concepts behind these painting exercises at home using similar subject matter.
