Watercolour with Diana
Watercolour with Diana
Highett Community Centre
This class is aimed at both experienced and inexperienced students keen to develop their watercolour skills. This class is conducted in a masterclass fashion, with students painting the same piece as the tutor in the studio on the day. Diana will provide ongoing critique and advice where needed, during the class. Questions and discussions of aspects relevant to improving our understanding of the watercolour process are part of the classes. A variety of subjects, of Diana’s choice, are done during the class. A material guide is provided below.
