Spring Awakens, watercolour painting of flowers by Julie Goldspink on watercolour canvas

Spring Awakens, watercolour painting by Julie Goldspink on watercolour canvas

Experience the lovely finely woven cotton feel of the watercolour canvas that has been pre-coated with a special gesso that has a form of resist. You will get to see the vibrant layers of colour build up by working light to dark.

If you have a fear of losing your whites, never fear again. I will demonstrate different methods and techniques using watercolour showing how to pull the colour out to retrieve the lights you may have covered up on the canvas.

You have the extra bonus of not having to put these watercolours under glass and they are very light to hang or transport. The finished artwork will have 3 to 4 coats of an acrylic gloss varnish, for protection. This unique example of laying down watercolours, will open new and exciting possibilities for you to experiment and develop your own artistic outcomes.

There will be some examples of subject matter listed on the Material List, in case you have some wonderful images of your own you would like to use. With some striking subjects to work with I can guarantee you will all have a fabulous workshop full of exploration, creativity, and fun.

Remember you are only limited by your own imagination. Paint with the “what if ” motto.
