About the course

This two-day course offers participants an opportunity for those either wanting to start out or improve their watercolour painting skills and offers guidance to get to grips with this medium. The tutor will demonstrate his techniques step by step to help you create your own unique work to capture the Yorkshire Dales landscape.

Suitable for those with some experience of handling watercolours. This course is likely to take place primarily indoors.

 

This course is part of Stories in Stone, a scheme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme was developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership, led by Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Kevin has had work accepted for the Northern section of the Laing Landscape Exhibition and the Royal Watercolour Society Open Exhibition at the Bankside Gallery and is a member of the Lunesdale Art Trail.
