What to expect

We are immensely lucky to have the renowned watercolour painter, Sophie Knight R.W.S., RA (dip). to teach this two day course at Long House Studios. To find out more about Sophie look at our tutors page and visit her website Sophie writes: Watercolour is sometimes an unpredictable medium – but it doesn’t have to be scary. In this two day workshop I aim to help students be bolder in their approach. I will demonstrate my own working methods and show how I get the painting on the move quickly with large blocks of colour washes. DAY 1 Working from landscape photos [ which I will provide] We will explore different ways of working : wet on wet and dry techniques, spraying the paper with a fine mist of water and working into slightly damp paper, even squeezing some of the pigment straight onto the paper. DAY 2 We can now apply some of the new working methods to creating a composition directly from the landscape around us. The studio at Long House Studios has large windows with views to the surrounding landscape and students will be able to stay inside or choose vistas from the grounds just outside the studio. I will be at hand to help you navigate creating a composition directly from the landscape and encourage your own creativity and confidence to flourish. We will finish the day with a look at and summary of our progress and a plan for future development.
