The Magic of Watercolour with Jonathan Newey

Tuesday 16th January – Tuesday 20th February

 This is a 5 week course that will show you how to use watercolour in different ways to paint different subjects. Each week will include a particular subject such as buildings, landscapes and still life. Techniques will include pen and wash, wet in wet, working on texture and painting with a single colour.

 Suitable for students of all abilities.

 Tools and materials needed for the course:

1 x A3 or A4 equivalent pad of ‘Not’ surface watercolour paper 140lb/300gsm

‘Not’ refers to the surface texture of the paper and is also known as CP (cold pressed) or Bockingford

1 x size 10 or 12 and 1 x size 4 round watercolour brush.
Watercolour paint, either tubes or pans.

If bringing tubes then you will need 1 white mixing palette or china plate

I recommend the following colours:

Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Raw Sienna

1 x Waterproof Black Ink Pen

I recommend either of the following: Pilot DR, Edding Profipen, Sakura pigment ink pen, Faber Castell Pitt Pen

1 x Water Receptacle (Jam Jar or plastic container)
Tissues
2B pencil
Putty rubber.

You are welcome to bring along any tools and materials you may already have and are familiar with.
