Art Course £45.00

Date: 10 October 2020

Time: 10:00am - 12:30pm

Watercolour sky techniques are a useful tool to enhance drawings by providing background colour and interesting effects. A great addition to any sketch!


Skies are key to any landscape painting and help set the mood through lighting and colour. During this two-session course, you will paint from beautiful inspiration images and gain the skills and techniques needed to venture into the open air and capture the sky with confidence.


“The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

You’ll find the Zoom link for the sessions on the booking ticket AND I will send you the link via email that will take you directly to the sessions (no pasword required) on the day of the workshop.

I will start the session 15mins before the official start of the workshop. This will give us an opportunity to iron out any technical difficulties if there are any and have a chat 🙂
