Watercolour for the terrified


Join nature journal artist Jules Woolford and learn how to use watercolour in an illustrative style.

You’ll learn about using and mixing colours, finding a palette that suits you, and tips and techniques to help you add colour to your sketches in a creative way.
Taking inspiration from the changing season, you’ll use the beautiful shades of autumn to illustrate some of the nature finds around us.

You can also try out some other kinds of water soluble media, which can add liveliness and fun to your drawings!

This class follows on from Jules’ ‘Creating your own Nature Journal’, but also works as a stand alone introduction to using watercolour in an illustrative way.

Please note that I can only run this event if a minimum of three people book on. In the case of cancellation I will inform you and give you the opportunity to transfer to another date or have your money refunded less booking fee.
