Christopher Ronus will be demonstrating

Watercolour Illustrations

 

Christopher says

“We’ll be looking at putting colour to an illustration using watercolours to describe light and atmosphere to help tell a story. I’ll demonstrate how I build up layers of paint to create deeper colours and stronger contrasts, all the while retaining the transparent qualities of watercolour. I’ll also run through my tools, how I prepare my surfaces and how you don’t need that many colours  to create an effective finished image.”

  

Visitors most welcome
