Meet the talented Watercolour artist Jane Davies and learn all about her energetic and vibrant pieces inspired by the natural beauty of Surrey!
This unique masterclass allows you access to one of our true local talents. Jane will introduce you to some of her work and then walk you through the innovative and self-taught methods she has developed to achieve flow and depth in her pieces.
In this two hour specialised Watercolour class, you will receive practical guidance on how to wet your paper, add colour, subtract certain areas and interrupt the page with masking fluids and more!
Building layer upon layer of artist quality watercolour pigments and using a range of brushes you will learn to loosen up your paint technique and create a response to the artist work to take home on the day!
About the Artist:
" I'm a self-taught artist living in the Surrey Hills with my husband and three dogs. I've always taken huge pleasure in painting and drawing animals since a young age. My dad introduced me to watercolour - with its magical qualities when I was a child. I've never lost that buzz I get when I let the colours wash together, to form something unique and beautiful."
Jane Davies, 2017
