If you are new to painting and would like to start somewhere - we can highly recommend Margaret Jarvis, an outstanding local tutor for Beginners and Improvers in both Watercolours paints and pencils and also Pen and Wash. Margaret comes with a wealth of knowledge and confirms that you don't need to be able to 'draw' to paint with watercolours, it's all about technique. Although nearly all of our classes and tutors are suitable for all abilities, for a really good grounding in watercolour techniques then Margaret course is ideal.

You will then feel infinitely more confident about attending any of the painting classes here, which actually attract a wide range of abilities. The students who paint like the tutors have probably practised for hundreds of hours, they were also beginners once.

This day will touch on colour mixing and using watercolours and it combines the subtle variable nature of the watercolour wash with finer detail picked out in black ink pen, allowing the artist different effects in shading and textures. The type of ink pens used - its water solubility and also stippling intensity and textures employed create a vast range of effects.
