“Making Watercolours Pop! Painting a Loose Colourful Hare ” Course Description 

 

Learn how to create a beautiful, colourful watercolour hare at Arley studios, based in the rolling hills of the Worcestershire countryside, right next to the River Severn.

 

Watercolour is my first love and I’d love to show you how use it to create a loose, expressive hare. The techniques taught are generic and will equip you to capture any wildlife in watercolour once you’ve taken the course.

The course is suitable for both beginners and improvers alike and is delivered in a warm, friendly atmosphere and at a steady pace. 

 

These courses have always proved very popular and often sell out, so book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
