Saturday 10am - 1pm - Watercolour with Iryna Haslam

Water & Reflection in Watercolour 

Class Materials will be provided for the first couple of lessons, and you will be advised on what would be beneficial for future classes and for practice at home. 

The course comprises three workshops with very essential practical skills to create water scenes using a wide range of watercolour techniques. The Water & Reflection is tailored for a very small group to deliver lots of personal attention to each of the participants. 

Closed online groups will be created by the tutor for the duration of the course for additional support and encouragement of the students’ progress. 

What is the course about? 

WATER. Understand the shape and the image of the water in still and dynamic state. Learn the aerial perspective and how to simplify shapes. 

WATER REFLECTION. Get familiar with the laws of water reflection. Immerse in such a complex topic as the reflection of boats in water. 

THE INFLUENCE OF THE DAYLIGHT. Examine the image of water and reflection affected by different types of light. 

BOATS. Get familiar with essential techniques to portray boats. 

What participants will do During the three consecutive workshops we will learn to portray waves of water, boats, work with mirror reflection and its complex shape, master your own paintings with basic rules of composition. Following the tutor demonstration, each workshop will be concluded with individual watercolour painting of water scenes based on references provided by the tutor.
