b) Landscape: Learn to frame compositions of landscape scenes. Naturescapes and scenery may seem very complicated and detailed and beautiful natural scenery may be hard to find. As it may not always possible to get a good view of every location, the watercolour painter should use one’s own judgement and methods of perspective to compose one’s painting, reducing, adding details, giving contrast whenever necessary. Methods of observation is important and will be practised in landscape painting. Building your observation skills – learn to observe and capture the scenery; learn how to use watercolour to paint the sky, clouds and trees, mountains, rivers, oceans, buildings, streetscapes, portraying various textures and spatial relationship of the landscapes, and being able to express the mood of scenery.

c) Life Drawing/Figure Drawing: Human figures are more difficult to master in watercolor paintings. Unlike still life and landscapes where subjects can be randomly added, reduced, modified, and transformed, figure painting requires very accurate form observation ability and good sketching skills. In particular, the portrayal of character expressions and dynamic poses requires students to have a deep foundation.

Life model sketching trains the observation skills, form observation ability and prepares you for higher level sketching. Learn brush skills and skin texture characteristics for figure painting. Life drawing classes are included in the Watercolour Painting course. (Find out more from us – a top up of $15 model fees is required)

三)人物写生:在水彩画中水彩人物是比较难掌握的,不像静物和风景那样可以把对象随意的增减、修改比例、变换色彩,它要求有十分准确的造型能力和良好的素描功底,特别是人物表情和动态神色的刻画需要学生有十分深厚的功底。

针对真人模特写生,首先训练观察力、造型能力,素描速写起稿的准确性。学习人物画着色的运笔技巧以及皮肤质感表现。
