Join us for an outdoor watercolour course in Brighton to paint the evening sky from various sites in Brighton.

On this course you will learn how to record the light over the sea using quick washes that describe that atmospheric moment, as the sun goes down.

Watercolour is a great medium to use as it is light, dries quickly and can create some beautiful layered washes.

Suitable for those with some experience of using watercolours.

Who is the course tutor?
Emily Jolley studied Fine Art at Newcastle Upon Tyne and since then has exhibited and sold work in the UK and Europe and currently makes her own work in the phoenix studio, Brighton. Emily started teaching watercolour 15 years ago and enjoys the accessibility and diversity of the medium. Watercolour can be challenging but also very rewarding, when you can record scenes and atmospheres around you. There are always new techniques to learn and different colour combinations to use that keeps the medium fresh and exciting.
