About the Workshop

Please meet at the hall at 9.30am. We will proceed to a local  park at 10.00am to start the workshop.

This workshop will suit students who have been exposed to the medium of watercolour and want to extend
their knowledge to the next level, as well as beginners willing to learn the secrets of the medium.  If you enjoy
the challenge of producing loose, bold and free watercolours, then this is for you.  There will be many step-
by-step demonstrations tackling wide variety of subjects from rural landscapes, urban cityscapes to coastal seascapes.

Chan is well known for his generosity in sharing his insights and experiences in watercolour. Students will be
guided through in how to create depth, incorporate figures, and connect shapes, edge control and how to
exploit the medium in creating magical effects.  Each student will receive personal attention and encouragement.

The truly magical qualities of watercolour can best be demonstrated in portraying atmospheric effects such
as mist, rain and fog. We will paint a variety of subjects including a typical misty Australian landscape with
gum trees as well as a cloudy /rainy scene with limited palette and muted colours.
Learn the various stages of wetness of the paper and paint to water consistency in creating these effects.
