Rhyl Henzell’s Watercolour Workshops for Coochie art group…
18th and 25th July 2017
Reference: Photos and sketches from local bushland environment … flora, fauna, parks, gardens, waterways and scrub etc…
Over the two weeks we will be painting watercolours, focusing especially on shapes and patterns… light and shadows, negative spaces, multiple edges, washing back using stencils (X-ray film) and different ways of using masking fluid.
Please bring 4/6 grounds to work on … either stretchedwatercolour paper (medium) or canvas primed with 2 coats of a special W C gesso (fine toothed) Schmincke make a good one.
The advantage of canvas is that it can be washed back to the white surface, does not stretch when wet or need to be framed. It can be sealed when finished with a spray varnish. (Schmincke have one and so do crystal Kote)
Keep work small and manageable … around A4 to give you time to try a few different techniques.
Just bring your usual watercolour paints and gear and a variety of brushes, large and small. If you have natural animal hair brushes they hold more water than synthetics and come to a beautiful point. …Masking fluid too if you like!
I look forward to working with you all again soon.
