What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?
A 10-week “Scapes” course: landscapes, seascapes, treescapes, townscapes and cityscapes. We will be using watercolour, acrylic and pastel. We will also use creative combinations of each medium.
All levels are welcome however, some experience will be useful.
Tutor-led demonstrations, discussions, and a sample of other works will be shown. After the introduction, you will be individually guided by the tutor.
What do I need to bring with me?
We will be starting with acrylics:
Suggested colours: Cadmium red, Yellow ochre, Cadmium yellow pale, Ultramarine, Burnt umber(the red and yellow can vary, titanium white (is more pigmented than other whites)
Other useful ones: Cerulean blue, Windsor blue, Burnt sienna, Viridian green, other reds, Turquoise and any other colours you like using.
Pallet: Use a lid of a large storage box or a tray with a raised lip, tissue and baking or greaseproof paper
To draw an outline: Pencil (soft pencils preferred, 3B, or softer)/rubber
Brushes: Please bring a selection of big and small brushes. Personally, I like the flat and softer brushes. A great pack is sold by Royal and Langnickel;12 Brush value pack. These can be used for both acrylic and Watercolour. The handles are light blue wooden, not plastic. But I will be bringing some to the sessions for you to purchase on the day.
Cloth or tissue to clean brushes and water containers (min 2)
To work on you can use:
- I like the Cranford paper they sell in Youdells. (like card)
- Light coloured paper (usually champagne or Ivory). Half a sheet is a perfect size. Tell them it is for the course with Thuline, they will know what you need.
- You can also use Acrylic paper if you want to use pastel in combination.
Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.
Please wear suitable clothing.
Are there any additional costs?
