Details

Painting on vellum requires different painting methods to working on paper, but is very rewarding, as colours have a brighter quality to them.

We will use watercolours, preferably Winsor and Newton, otherwise artist/professional quality paints (see materials list for recommendations). We will study fruits to paint, giving you the opportunity hone in on the different methods and effects achieved with vellum.

All abilities welcome. Individual help will be given as well as general teaching of the whole group.
