Overview

Always wanted to try watercolour but not sure where to start? 

The simple shapes and blended colours of icy-poles and popsicles make them the perfect subject matter for a gorgeous watercolour work! In this three-hour workshop, artist, illustrator and surfer Hannah Katarski (aka Mermaid's Coin) will teach you the fundamentals of using watercolours and how to apply them in a quirky, illustrative style. 

In this fun and relaxed class, you will learn how to mix and layer watercolours to create an effective Pop Art inspired painting. Translating the colours and textures of sweet summer treats, you will also experiment with wet-in- wet techniques and incorporate 'happy accidents' into a successful composition.
