Watercolour Painting Waterscapes by the Dart with Paul Riley

Tutor: Paul Riley

July 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - July 17, 2020 @ 2:00 pm

| £395 – £640

This watercolour painting course with Paul Riley makes the most of the stunning area around Coombe by taking participants on location painting following the water from our stream at Coombe, to the River Dart in Dittisham and out to sea at Blackpool sands.

Paul adores painting waterscapes and the accompanying skyscapes that go hand-in-hand. Attention is also given to the rendering of boats and their elusive perspective. This course offers a great opportunity for you to get to grips with both as well as the chance to explore the stunning River Dart. If the weather bad we will still make the most of the locations by going out and taking quick sketches and photos and bring them back to work on in the studio.

“It seems that watercolor painting was almost invented for waterscapes. Many of the peculiarities of water can be best expressed by it. Ripples, waves, scattered light and reflections are easily rendered. Like all aspects of watercolour painting the secret lies in sequences – what to do first”
