Watercolour Houses

Sat 12th Oct 2024
10am – 1pm

Stepping On Out, Teddington

Join us for the latest in our series of watercolour painting workshops with experienced local teacher and professional artist Karen Iredale Lucas, this time focussing on the art of creating pictures of buildings.

In this informative and relaxing Saturday morning workshop, Karen will start by demonstrating how to use basic line drawing techniques to draw the outline of the exterior of the building, teaching you about correct angles of line using the rules of perspective. You’ll then add some textural detail and use watercolour washes to apply colour as desired.

Karen will guide you as you work on your own paintings, with participant numbers kept deliberately low to ensure everyone has plenty of opportunities for help and to ask any questions they may have. By the end of the class, everyone will have an original watercolour art work to take home.

Either bring along a photo of the exterior of your house (or another of your choice), or use our photograph of Marble Hill House.

The class is suitable for both beginners and for those with more experience wanting to improve their painting skills. It’s also a great follow-on for attendees of Karen’s previous watercolour classes.

We’ll provide the paper, brushes and paints, together with lots of tea, coffee and homemade cake, but please feel free to bring along your own set of watercolour paints and brushes if you’d prefer.

“enjoyable, relaxing watercolour art session. Would definitely recommend. Good demonstrations with plenty of time to complete”
