Watercolour Painting Open Studio | Tanya Baily

Course overview

This evening watercolour painting class is designed for those new to watercolours or those with prior experience. In this relaxed and friendly class students bring their own ideas and subject matter to paint. This makes the class ideal for those with specific projects in mind, whether you want to paint portraits, to landscapes and beyond. It is also a perfect class for those new to watercolour painting wanting to gather some techniques and gain confidence through simple exercises.

What to expect

Students can expect to learn how to develop their ideas to produce finished artworks, and will also learn a full range of skills and techniques in the magical medium of watercolour painting. Students work at their own pace, and Tanya works with each student individually to develop their own work and style.

Materials

Art materials are not included in the course fee. Students will need to supply their own materials. Occasionally the tutor will introduce a new medium in class which will be provided.

Students should bring the following to class each week:

*1x 56cmx76cm best quality 100% Cotton 300gsm medium grain watercolour paper

  • 1x pad A4 size cheaper student-quality watercolour paper (10-15 sheets).
  • Artist quality watercolour paints such as Windsor and Newton, Art Spectrum, Daniel Smith, Schminke or Old Holland.

In 5ml tubes: Raw Sienna, Lemon Yellow, Windsor Red (or cadmium red), Alizarin Crimson, Prussian Blue, Ultramarine Blue. This is a basic set of warm/cool colours. If you already have watercolour paints bring what you have.

NOTE: Please buy quality paints such as Windsor and Newton, Art Spectrum, Daniel Smith, Schminke or Old Holland. Cheap paint sets that you find in a discount/variety store do not have much pigment so are extremely difficult to work with and you will not be able to achieve the results you need.

  • Large Deep pan Watercolour palette- minimum 8 pans
  • One set (12 pencils) of good quality watercolour/Aquarelle pencils (Tutor recommends Faber Castell and Caran D’Ache)
  • Brushes: synthetic watercolour brushes are fine: size 4, 8 and 12
  • 2 clean jars or containers for water
  • Pencil (HB, B or 2B), eraser, ruler, masking tape, sharpener
  • Sketchbook or paper for drawing up composition plans.
  • One roll of kitchen roll absorbent paper
