Landscape painting

Turallo Creek bridge Bungendore 899

Workshop outline.

The workshop will focus on watercolour landscapes. Weather permitting we will do some outdoor sketching and use our sketches to create a studio painting. We will work on watercolour techniques and composition in landscape painting along with the use of sketches and photographs for inspiration.

Beginners and more experienced artists are catered for in the small workshop format and everyone works at their own pace.

Classes start at 9.30 am sharp and finish around 4.30 pm.

Tea, Coffee and biscuits are provided during the workshop.

Lunch (usually 12:30 to 1:30 pm) may be purchased at the nearby shops or brought to class by students.

Please note:

That certain aspects of the planned program may be modified to suite the workshop.

The course fee is for tuition only and doesn't include materials, transport or accommodation (if required).
