Watercolour | Painting Birds One Day workshop | Susie Murphie

Course Overview

In this class learn about painting the shapes, textures and colours of birds using watercolours. In Susie’s classes, students learn tips and tricks for keeping watercolours transparent and beautiful. This method will give you the essential techniques to tackle all sorts of subjects with confidence. You will come away with a feeling of wonder and addiction to this extraordinary watery paint and be confident that you can tackle anything. Students will work from reference photos and still life.

Is this course right for me

While all levels of artist are welcome, some prior experience with watercolours is recommended. Students should have at least attended a beginner watercolour workshop.

Student feedback

I am a big fan of Susie Murphie’s style of working with watercolours and she has been a big influence on my own work. Even though I am an experienced artist myself I always learn something from her workshops.
