WHAT WILL YOU DO?

“I will encourage you to be bold, experimental but most of all to be ‘free’ and to enjoy the painting process. The key to bold fluid watercolours – without the safety net of a pencil underdrawing – is courage, preparation and spontaneity. As a medium it can be delicate and transparent or vibrant and rich in consistency.

Mastering watercolour takes years of practice, forging a special relationship between you and the materials; therefore these few hours are not aimed at producing a “pretty painting” but rather encouraging you to be bold and free in your approach, creating experimental studies to give you a taste of the many possibilities this wonderful medium is capable of.

You will first absorb the beautiful surroundings then we will chat about the aims of the lesson and will do a short demonstration on preparing the paint in advance.

We will start with ‘loosening up’ mark making to get you into the flow, then I will be there to show you some watercolour techniques and guide you on a one-to-one level to meet your individual creative needs, whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced painter.”

Susie Barrow

At the end of you painting session, we will serve a La Sosta by the Glass wine aperitif with appetizers prepared by the Cook on the terrace.
