Develop some different watercolour techniques that can be used for portraits. Photographs and photocopies will be used as source material for the portraits eliminating a lot of the time usually taken to draw out before painting.

Catherine MacDiarmid has exhibited widely including the Mall Galleries and was a semi-finalist in the Sky Portrait Artists of the Year 2019. Catherine has 28 years’ experience teaching art courses.
