Grahame Booth paints only in watercolour and his success in the medium is reflected in the numerous national and international exhibition awards he has won over many years.
With no prior experience Grahame started to paint in his early 30s and the fact that he clearly remembers the problems and frustrations of learning watercolour has helped to make him a particularly sympathetic tutor, passing on lessons and techniques over nearly 25 years that are proven to ease the way.
This 4 day course will cover observation of the beautiful Dunmore East landscape and how to produce simple but accurate and well composed pencil drawings as a basis for watercolour paintings as well as more considered pen drawings for pen and wash.
We will see how tried and tested watercolour techniques can be used to translate the landscape into watercolours full of light, excitement and impact. There will be daily demonstrations and plenty of one to one tuition. Most demonstrations and drawing sessions will be plein air, weather permitting but students may paint plein air or in the studio as they prefer.
