Book early to save $20 off cost of ‘Simply Watercolour’ Workshop


10am – 4pm

Scratch Art Space, 67 Sydenham Road, Marrickville NSW

I will be teaching this one-day watercolour workshop on Sunday 1 November 2015 at the Marrickville art gallery/art school, Scratch Art Space.

Save $20 off the cost of the workshop by making an early booking before 14 October 2015. Contact Scratch Art Space now to confirm your place:

In this workshop students will learn the basic techniques for painting with watercolours and will see how easy they can be to use by commencing with some simple exercises and advancing to producing some small finished paintings to take home. Using a limited palette of just 5 colours students will be shown how to work quickly in a loose style which requires only a minimum amount of drawing and I will demonstrate how this simple method can be applied to virtually any subject ranging from still life to visual travel diaries.

This work shop is perfect for absolute beginners with no watercolour painting or drawing experience and will also be useful for those students who have worked with acrylics or oils and are interested in trying this versatile medium.

The watercolour paints needed are included in the cost of the workshop so students will only need to bring just an A4 185gsm watercolour pad (I suggest the 12-sheet Canson watercolour pad which can be purchased for around $12 from art supply shops); a 2B pencil; paper towels; a white plastic or china dinner plate or tray (around A4 size) for mixing paints on; and your lunch (the gallery has a fridge) coffee and tea will be provided.

I will supply the paint brushes needed and some samples of different papers for students to experiment with and will also bring along a range of photographic and other reference for students to use as subject material. For anyone wanting to know more about what art supplies to bring or have any ther queries relating to the workshop (apart from booking the class), you can email me on or call 9558 2248.

The cost of the workshop is $160 (includes all watercolour paints needed) or $140 if you take advantage of registering early before 14 October 2015. You will need to contact Scratch Art Space directly to make a booking:
