About the course:

This course continues the exploration of painting with watercolour looking at harmony in colour and combination of techniques.  Students will learn how to stretch paper and will complete a series of exercises and projects based on themes from nature. We will look at monochromatic, complementary and analogous colour schemes and will gain practice combining wet and dry techniques with transparent glazing.   Watercolour Two is a recommended/prerequisite for the follow-on Watercolour Three and Four. 

Learning outcomes:

- An enhanced ability to identify and mix colour and an understanding of how different hues affect each other.

- Skills in stretching paper

- Further skills in transparent glazing and applying washes on wet and dry

- An understanding of highlights, surface and cast shadow

Prerequisites/level:   Suitable for 16+ ages, beginners who have completed Watercolour ONE and those wanting to revise their practice.
