Art Lab with ANDREW CHEDDIE SOOKRAH, Watercolour

Elevate Your Idea / Sketch or Photograph To An Excellent Watercolour Painting

Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced watercolour artist, Andrew will guide you through a fun process of creating an impactful and expressive painting of your favourite subject with the versatile (and challenging) medium of watercolour.

He will demonstrate techniques such as washes, wet in wet, wet on dry, drybrush, the use of salt, etc, to express your personal interpretation of the chosen subject.

With his live demonstrations and one to one guidance, Andrew will help artists throughout the day.

Demonstrations will be done in transparent watercolour, with guidance on an opaque use of the medium.

Whatever the source of your inspiration – an idea / sketch, a photograph; be it figurative, landscape, still life, wildlife / pets, it can be transformed into a terrific watercolour painting.

Basic drawing techniques, perspective, composition, colour, texture, use of material will be explored.
