Abstract Watercolour Art Workshop

Watercolour painting is a beautiful way to use water and ground pigments to paint beautiful pictures. Watercolour painting is known for its delicacy and subtlety because this art is all about thin washes and transparent colour. The luminosity of the painting is rendered by the white of the surface. Also watercolours is a very relaxing medium to paint with.

We can create different effects using simple things like salt, tape, dish sponge, water splatters and threads.

Come along and join Rashmi from @watercolorlibran in a fun and relaxed watercolour workshop where she will teach you to paint an abstract watercolour painting using some simple things.

You will be learning some basic theory about water, colours and how they come together. The later and larger part of the workshop will be hands on with a lot of practise on basic techniques and having fun painting abstract. In this workshop you will get to use quality supplies and take home a completed painting. 

In this class, you will cover:

  • Watercolour theory about water, colours and how they come together
  • Basic brush control exercises and watercolour techniques
  • Your abstract painting with colours you choose uniquely

You will take home a unique piece of art to decorate your space and a wealth of knowledge to paint more.

No previous experience necessary.

Suitable for: age 16+

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Rashmi is a self-taught watercolour artist who has moved from the stages of being a confused beginner to an obsessive painter and now to a calm watercolourist creating pieces that brings joy to her and to everyone who look at them. She loves to paint bright, cheery and colourful florals but occasionally enjoys bringing a landscape to life on paper. Her most favourite pieces are the watercolour adaptations of homes and bridal bouquets that her followers commission. Her painting style is largely impressionist and her inspiration comes from nature. Her classes are a relaxed space where you get to explore this medium without fear and as she guides you, you will finish a whole piece to take home.
