This workshop is the 1st on a beginners watercolour course to be continued once a month on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, and students will be enrolled on that basis. The day will start at 10.30 a.m. with informal introductions, and with tea, coffee and cake in Gilly's teaching studio, then we'll have a presentation and discussion on aspects of watercolours that we are going to learn in the day, which will be doing a simple watercolour aimed at teaching us some basic application techniques. We will practice all basic techniques before applying them to our painting in a simple step by step way, which Gilly will demonstrate as a group and individually, there will be very little drawing involved, and students are not required to have any previous experience. We will break for lunch which can be had in the conservatory, summer house or garden, weather permitting, and finish at 3.30 p.m. Guests can also stay a second night if they wish, Gilly's house and garden have been described as a wonderful experience in themselves, and a 'retreat' of tranquility and beauty.
I have a BA honours degree in graphic design, and a certificate for teaching adults. I have been teaching in adult education for 17 years, I have also been an illustrator in advertising and in children's book publishing. I have latterly become an award winning watercolour artist, exhibiting in national watercolour societies and galleries. I love teaching what I know in a fun way, which is in small do-able steps to help build confidence. Please google Gilly Marklew, for website, you tube video's, video tutorials, painting holidays, teaching blog and much more.
