Bring your curiosity and a willingness to learn as you enjoy developing skills for painting seascapes,  moody skies, and boats in watercolour. This is a practical three-hour session where we'll cut through the complexities and focus on the essentials of painting marine scenes. Whether you're a beginner or have some experience, this workshop is all about hands-on learning. You will learn a range of watercolour techniques, including colour mixing, brush control, and composition, to give you a solid foundation.

You'll leave with a seascape painting you can be proud of, and maybe a few new tricks up your sleeve.

Saba Manesh is a watercolour artist, originally from Iran who trained in watercolours as part of her degree in Urban Design. "Watercolour is my passion, and each painting tells a story of places I've explored and tried to depict emotions I've felt and the connection I have with the world around me as an artist and landscape architecture. My art is a reflection of the seasons, the landscapes, and the beauty that exists everywhere either in a landscape or a bunch of flowers."

What to expect

In this workshop, students will gain confidence in using watercolour to develop a solid understanding of advanced watercolour techniques for landscapes, also explore the emotional impact of colour and brushwork in landscape painting. 

Is this course right for me?

This course is suitable for anyone! All levels of experience are welcome.
