Tuition Workshop - Watercolour Sketches

Leslie Child is a Watercolourist specialising in scenes of local interest 'Cityscapes and people are my favourite subjects and I enjoy using pencils and wash for maximum impact. My approach is quite detailed and I tend to favour strong architectural elements in my paintings using figures to give scale and perspective to the overall scene.'During this workshop you will learn techniques with Derwent Watercolour and Inktense Pencils using loose sketches to capture moments for use in a travel journal. You will cover topics such as travel sketching composition figures into cityscapes shadows and reflections on water creating realistic skies and painting to capture the atmosphere.A faux suede Derwent travel journal is included as a complementary gift in the workshop. To set you off straight away capturing your travels in watercolour in the fabulous Lakeland scenery.Workshops run between 10.30am – 4.30pm. £40 per person per workshop.
