Art Classes at Hopewell Studios, Knaresborough.

Dive into Watercolours with Frances Payne @ Hopewell Studios.

This exciting course will take you on a deep dive into using watercolours confidently and effectively. You will explore various techniques, exercises and approaches as well getting to grips with the more technical aspects of the medium:

  • how and when to stretch your paper,
  • workstation set-up,
  • pans or tubes,
  • which paper should you use and much more.

We will also look at interesting and exciting ways to incorporate other mediums into your watercolour work. The course is suitable for beginners and improvers looking to build confidence in what can be seen as a tricky medium to master.

Weather permitting there will be opportunities for ‘en plein air’ location sketching in unspoilt, private woodland.
