Come and enjoy a day of painting outside at the stunning Leighton Art Centre location! The workshop is designed for artists of all levels who are either new to watercolour plein air painting or want to improve their existing skills. Karin will introduce different ways to approach capturing the out of doors, starting with how to see correctly and how to commit it to paper using W/C pens, pencils, paint and brush.
Through demonstrations, personal attention and critiques, Karin will focus on the elements needed to create a successful painting like strong composition and design, exciting colour and tonal values.
