Watercolour Class and Workshop Information

A WATERCOLOUR WORKSHOP/CLASS WITH JOSEFIA LEMON

ABOUT THE TUTOR

I have been teaching watercolour classes and workshops, particularly at the Julian Ashton Art School since 2000

OVERVIEW

I aim to simplify some of the fundamental techniques of painting with watercolours and to achieve a sense of distance using tonal values, colours and shapes including composition. Demonstrations will be given throughout the day and students will aim to do at least 3-4 paintings in a day. References will be provided. It is suitable for beginners, intermediate to advanced students who will be encouraged to work fast confidently.
