About the Workshop

Explore how to let rip in watercolour by gaining control of the medium with Ella’s unique insights into handling watercolour and finding your own mark-making rhythm in gestural work. You’ll ex- plore various processes of working from the surrounding landscape and translating drawings into energetic planes of transparent watercolour at various scales and formats. We will consider ex- amples by artists Ivon Hitchens, Peter Lanyon, Joan Mitchell and Alf Löhr.
