Painting the Misty Landscape - Full Day Workshop
Time & Location
About The Event
Wet paper is best for a misty, foggy atmosphere. Wet-into-wet can give a student a sense of trepidation as they fear the loss of control. Shifting focus from edges to shapes and understanding pigment consistency will build confidence with the medium. The mixing and glazing exercises will give students an understanding of how the drying process of the paper effects the appearance. Mixing colours on the paper adds a wonderfully loose impressionistic effect.
I cater for all skill levels, so do not be apprehensive if you are new this this medium.

You can bring along any brand of paint but you may not get the same colour intensity as artist quality paint. P & E Fine Art (formerly Mi-Art) stock Windsor & Newton and Daniel Smith artist quality paints. These paints are more light-fast and colour intensity is evident in the finished art work.
Brushes, Pencils and Palette
- Plastic palette
Bring whatever round, flat or mop brushes that you have. Quality brushes are very expensive. I will supply the buckets for washing brushes.
- Arches or other watercolour paper (natural white, A3 or try a half sheet, 300gsm, rough or cold pressed)
- Visual diary (A4) to practice sketching
- Masking tape (approximately 18mm wide)
