Tutor - Janet Judge Janet has been a professional painter for over 20 years exhibiting widely, with many images published as prints and greetings cards. She is known for her sumptuous colours and relaxed, contemporary painting style, and will show you how to capture the feel of the garden at this time of year. Watercolour can have a mind of its own but Janet teaches her students to work with the medium, enjoying the flow of the colour rather than fighting and trying to completely control it. You will start with tonal drawings using charcoal and watercolour with big brushes to loosen up and get a feel for the plants and the garden. Students will be able to work out in the garden (weather permitting) or in the classroom. Learn how to build up layers of transparent colour, try techniques such as wet in wet and experiment with using sticks and feathers as well as a variety of different brushes. You will have time to work on several paintings over the three days. There will be a mixture of demonstrations and individual tuition, making the course suitable for everyone except the absolute beginner.
