Previous workshop with Guy Troughton held on Sunday, 25th February – Watercolour Landscape Workshop

How often do we pause and look closely at a wonderful view of the landscape and consider how we would capture such an impressive scene and describe it through a painted surface?

Our Watercolour Landscape Workshop with Guy Troughton provided 12 enthusiastic artists with a masterclass, taking us from the analysis of a scene through the process of compositional design, colour selection, and enabling tone to describe perspective and to highlight a focal point of interest.  

Guy is a highly skilled artist who works in oils, acrylics and watercolour. He is well known for his masterful depiction of birds, animals and the landscape. Through the workshop, Guy explored the use of watercolour techniques to illustrate the forms and textures found in both nature and the built environment. We used these techniques in the creation of a Riverina farm scene.

At the close of the day, we all had more than a painting. We had a new, or renewed, appreciation of the possibilities of the watercolour medium, ideas about how we could use new techniques, and we had also enjoyed a great time together.
