We’ll also cover how to use Acrylics like Watercolour and how to choose which acrylics to use for watercolour techniques
2 Weeks of WATERCOLOUR: Discover the magic of watercolour, learn about the characteristics and properties and how to choose and use the colours because of how they work with each other rather than just what colour they are!

Judith Kittel’s recently-completed 4-week course provided attendees with a master class in mixing and using colour.
Replete with valuable information, the class was led on an exciting (not to mention colourful) adventure, as we applied our new-found colour theory using acrylic paints in the first fortnight and then watercolour for the following two weeks. Those, like myself, who chose to, also practised using acrylics as if they were watercolour (which is less simple than one might first think!).
Judith left us all with a great store of background reference material to draw on in the future . I thank her particularly for teaching me how to now confidently ‘read’ the labels of the paint tubes I buy!
