Fri 11 May Breaking the Rules with Watercolours


Having won Gold and Silver RHS medals for her Botanical Illustrations, Ruth Kirkby is very familiar with the rules of conventional watercolour painting. However, she also delights in breaking those rules, and has developed a number of techniques, using a variety of household materials and objects, to produce some fascinating effects. She will be demonstrating those methods and encouraging those of you who book on the course to investigate the way forward using some or all of them.

All abilities are welcome, including complete beginners.

Please bring along you own materials (paper, watercolours, brushes, pencil and eraser, jar for water and drawing board (if you have one)). If you don't have these, you'll be able to purchase them from Ruth on the day.
