Poured watercolours is the art of layering transparent watercolours.  For this class we will be using Dr. Ph. Martins Hydrus concentrated liquid watercolour.

We transfer/draw our image onto stretched watercolour paper, that has also been stapled to a watercolour board. A Watercolour board is provided for the duration of the class.

3 – 4 layers of paint are needed with drying time between each layer.

The painting is created by preserving the different values of a composition using Pébéo drawing gum between each pour.

(Please note: Pébéo Drawing Gum does contain latex and can be an allergen to someone with a latex sensitivity or allergy.)

Preserving lightest values first, middle, middle to dark and finally darkest values.

This class will be open to 3 Beginning students and 3 Continuing students.

Spaces are filled on a first come, first serve basis.

I will keep a waiting list for future classes

*Please note an itemized supply list will be emailed out to all students. Some students may already have some of the listed items and can choose to purchase only what they need.
