    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.


    Description

     

    Judi Whitton will demonstrate how to produce a free and spontaneous watercolour and you will have the opportunity to paint translucent watercolours on a lovely smooth paper and add lively calligraphic marks and a touch of colourful gouache.  Judi will talk about the essential ways in which you can give a look of free spontaneity in your work, vary the techniques and materials used to produce energetic work and how to decide when the picture is finished. Working from reference material provided by Judi, you will be encouraged to produce a painting with a colourful fresh and free look. Individual tuition will be provided throughout the session.

    Each student will receive, courtesy of Daler-Rowney, one Aquafine Watercolour Pocket Set, two 15ml tubes of Aquafine Gouache, two bottles of Aquafine Watercolour Ink, one Aquafine Watercolour Pad, one Aquafine Sable Round Brush and an FW Marker Set.  The total value is worth over £65(rrp).

    The Aquafine Watercolour range has been reengineered to bring to market the best and most comprehensive ‘student’ quality range of watercolours, offering artists a superior lightfastness, wetting agent, and fineness of grind.

    The new range of Aquafine Gouache has been formulated to match the watercolour range tone for tone, offering artists the possibility of working with the two ranges together seamlessly. Aquafine Gouache combines the graphic elements from Daler-Rowney’s historic Designers’ Gouache with a new highly opaque formula that dries to an eggshell finish.

    The new Aquafine Watercolour Ink range has 20 highly saturated, lightfast pigment-based watercolour inks.  Formulated with the same pigments as Aquafine Watercolour and Gouache, these colours will not fade over time and can be applied directly from the dropper, by brush, with paint markers, technical pens and by airbrush, making them practical and easy to use.
