Hi, I’ve been teaching art and design subjects to adults in the UK for 20 years and watercolour painting in particular for the last 7 years at the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution in north London.
I demonstrate techniques where appropriate as students work on their own projects.
I will be teaching a course of Zoom classes on Monday afternoons starting in September through the HLSI. You can see my work at: http://artworks-writings-mwkelly.blo…ercolours.htmlDecember 15, 2020 at 12:07 pm
JAMES POSTILL: BETWEEN REALISM AND ABSTRACTIONApril 4, 2023 at 5:14 am
Watercolor painting is a popular medium among artists for its unique characteristics including transparency, fluidity, and luminosity. One of the key techniques of watercolor painting is wet-on-wet, which involves applying wet paint to a wet surface to create soft, blended edges and organic shapes. Another technique is dry-brushing, where a dry brush is used to apply paint to a dry surface, thereby defining texture and detail. A popular method for creating realistic texture and detail is layering, where multiple layers of paint are applied to gradually build up color and form. Other techniques include lifting, where paint is removed to create highlights, and masking, where areas are protected from paint with a masking fluid. Mastering these techniques can create stunning and expressive watercolor paintings.
