1 Day Watercolour Workshop in Gloucestershire with Ann Blockley

Course Date: April 16th 2018, 10am-4pm

Course location: Todenham, Gloucestershire

Loose and adventurous watercolour interpretations

General Course Details:

This 1 day workshop will combine demonstrations and practical work. It is for people with some watercolour experience and not complete beginners. The aim is to experiment, loosen up and develop exciting and expressive ways of mark making. The emphasis will be on enjoying the process and not necessarily to create ‘finished’ paintings but to explore ideas and options. You will be encouraged to work loosely and use your imagination to create an atmospheric impressionistic style with which to interpret landscape and nature. There will be lots of ideas and inspiration on offer for you to explore including the use of opaque paint, ink and granulation techniques. You will create a variety of different washes and unusual textures, stretching the boundaries of watercolour and focusing mainly on techniques with short drying times. If you are ‘stuck’, or looking for ideas and inspiration with which to move your work in a new direction this is the course for you! Demonstrations will be in watercolour on paper. Subjects will for example include trees and flowers in the landscape.

The workshops are based at Todenham Village Hall. This large attractive hall is in Ann’s home village of Todenham, near Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds.

Refreshments and a ploughman’s or similar lunch are included. There will be a vegetarian option but if you are dairy or gluten free you may wish to bring something with you to supplement the lunch provided. There will be a maximum of 14 people on each course.

Please note that although you are welcome to book onto both courses the 2 day workshop following this will repeat some of the content from the 1 day workshop.

An email confirmation containing a link for you to download full information about what to bring with you and so on will be sent to you after you have booked.
