Painting for the Petrified – Are you petrified of painting but long to try watercolours but have been deterred by the erroneous myth that they are supposed to be ‘difficult’? Richard will dispel that myth and teach you, step by step, how to paint a simple still life and achieve marvellous effects with numerous layers of translucent colours without ‘getting mud ’in just one day!.

Please bring with you: • A watercolour paint box that contains six colours: ultramarine, cerulean blue, lemon-yellow, cadmium yellow or gamboge, scarlet and crimson.(The following make is worth considering, it has all six colours, can be bought on line and is reasonably priced……Winsor & Newton Cotman Sketchers Pocket Box Watercolour Paint 12 half pans.)
• Two good quality paint brushes:sizes three and eight approximately. Pro Arte round brushes are excellent. A set of five can be bought on line at reasonable price.
• A pallet with at least six indentations.
• One apple, one orange, one onion and a very small bunch of grapes.
Richard will supply watercolour paper already stretched on drawing boards for you at no extra charge.
