Watercolour Techniques Workshop

Watercolour Techniques Workshop

Saturday 29th May 10am-1:30pm

Where: 410A Station Street, Thornbury 3071.


This workshop focuses specifically on watercolour techniques used in botanical art, with minimal or no drawing involved. It is a great introduction to watercolour for beginners and those who would like further experience and tips. 


You will gain an understanding in:

  • Basic colour theory
  • Mixing colours with watercolour
  • Watercolour techniques including layering, wet-in-wet, wet-on-dry, dry brush and lifting off colour
  • When to use each technique and how wet to be working
  • How to avoid muddy colours and not over-work the paper


This workshop welcomes students of all experience levels. You will return home with a page of techniques painted by yourself and a watercolour painting of your own creative expression as well as the knowledge and confidence to continue painting.

All art materials provided as well as tea, coffee and light snacks. Just bring yourself!
