This new Landscape Watercolour Course is a short course designed for beginners and intermediate artists interested in exploring the captivating world of landscape painting using watercolours. This course will cover foundational techniques, composition, colour theory and essential skills required to create beautiful landscape watercolour paintings. 

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."
