About the workshop

Investigate, develop and expand your knowledge of water colour and water based media. Wayne will help you to capture light and atmosphere, starting from direct observation. Although draughtsmanship is fundamental, the aim is not to produce a topographical statement but rather to capture an emotive sense of place. Using what you learn and observation, composition and dynamic mark making, you will move towards responding in a free and intuitive way.
