WATERCOLOUR OUR WAY 28th & 29th March 2015
Take advantage of two creative minds to assist you in inspiration and techniques in a relaxed, caring and fun environment.
This course will explore two different ways to “save your whites” and two different approaches to painting a watercolour.
Using step by step demonstrations, Lucy and Barry will show you their method of painting a watercolour and will be discussing aspects including their equipment and basic art principles, concentrating on drawing, design, value, colour, shape and edge. Lucy is internationally known for her watercolours with many publications to her name.
Their patience and individual attention will guarantee an enjoyable experience. ALL REFERENCE MATERIAL WILL BE PROVIDED.
Both full time artists, Lucy & Barry McCann are a husband & wife team who produce works largely on a commission basis. Their demonstrations, teaching & judging skills are sought after by art societies and groups throughout Australia & overseas. They have achieved numerous prizes and awards with their work represented in many private & corporate collections. They have appeared on the TV series “Colour in your life”.
