Pouring in Watercolours with Cathy Peters......Members Only Morning Demo

Pouring in Watercolours with Cathy Peters......Members Only Morning Demo

In this demonstration, Cathy will demonstrate how to bring a feeling of fresh, free and serendipitous creative spirit using the watercolour medium. Working with non-traditional applications (pouring, dabbing, using eye-droppers) and very little brushwork, Cathy will create a watercolour painting in a loose and free flowing method. The demonstration will include a number of different steps and stages in the development of the painting as well as and information provided about the preparation of the materials, types of paper, resist/ masking materials, and watercolour paints. There is not enough time for individual artists to work along, due to the preparation and mixing of paint with various mediums. This is a very time consuming process but an excellent introduction to this technique in watercolour.
