2) Watercolour 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. It may not always possible to get a good view of every location. Thus, the watercolour painter should use one’s own judgement and methods of perspective to compose one’s painting by reducing, adding details or 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. In addition, learn how to use watercolour to paint the sky, clouds and trees, mountains, rivers, oceans, buildings, streetscapes.

3) Watercolour 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.
