Tutor: Judi Whitton
Judi Whitton is a professional artist who paints in a free style with transparency of colour and is well known for her articles in The Artist.
Judi will demonstrate how to produce a fresh and spontaneous watercolour and various methods will be covered, including composition, the importance of the techniques in the application of the paint and how to decide when the picture is finished. Working from photographic reference or sketches, participants will be encouraged to produce a painting with a colourful fresh and lively look. Individual tuition will be provided throughout the session.
The sessions will run from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm and the afternoon course is a repeat of the morning's session. The cost of each three-hour session is £50(inc VAT) per person and includes instruction from Judi Whitton, Daler-Rowney materials worth over £50(rrp), PLUS free entry to Patchings Art, Craft and Photography Festival for the day, worth £9.50
Each student will receive, courtesy of Daler-Rowney, an Aquafine Travel Tin; one Sapphire Watercolour Round Brush and a Langton 300gsm HP Pad, worth over £50(rrp).
Aquafine Watercolour offers rich, free-flowing transparent colour with excellent tinting strength and working properties. All colours can be used to produce beautiful and delicate washes. Sapphire Watercolour Brushes are a unique blend of only the finest red sable hair and tapered synthetic filaments, working together to create a brush that performs like a sable, and lasts like a synthetic. Langton Paper is colour-stable and mould-made. It is also acid-free, which prevents the deterioration of paint and preserves the integrity of the paper over time.
The sessions will run in conjunction with Patchings Art, Craft & Photography Festival; one of the UK’s finest practical art, craft and photography events, set in 60 acres of picturesque Nottinghamshire countryside. The festival showcases some of the best professional artists and craft makers, including paintings, textiles, jewellery, glasswork, photography, ceramics, woodwork and sculpture. There will also be art and craft materials for testing and purchase, guest artists, demonstration marquees and hands-on workshops. The festival, at Patchings Art Centre in Calverton, Nottinghamshire, runs from Thursday to Sunday, June 9 to 12, 10am to 5pm daily.
