Watercolour | Painting Sky + Water with Susie Murphie

The focus of this class is painting the sky, clouds and water using watercolours, all notoriously tricky subjects to master. In Susie’s classes, you will learn how to keep 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. Please along your favourite photos for reference or use Susie’s reference material.
