Watercolour Illustration Workshop with Dani May Cook

Watercolour Illustration  7th of August 1-5pm  £30

This Watercolour Illustration workshop is a half day hands on class suitable for anyone who wants to get some confidence with using watercolour pencils.


Beginner to intermediate ability. Suitable for people who have bought a tin of watercolour pencils, but never got round to trying them properly. Or for those who maybe have dabbled but are still not sure how best to use them.. Also suitable for practising artists looking to learn new techniques / ways of working.


This wonderful 4 hour class will allow you to see how Dani uses watercolour pencils in a variety of ways combined with drawing as the starting point and realize the potential of these versatile tools . Dani will be using drawing to start with but do not be afraid if that isn’t something that you are not confident with, as she can provide pre made templates if needed.


What you will learn


  • Choosing your design to work with (bring a photo you want to use for inspiration, otherwise the tutor will have some bird images on hand to work from)

  • Creating the foundations using illustration techniques

  • Getting to grips with colours and colour swatching

  • Different techniques of watercolour pencils and ways of applying them


What to bring

All materials will be provided, but bring your own watercolour pencils if you wish to do so and any photos that you wish to work from too. Just ask if you have any further questions too prior to the workshop and Dani will be happy to help.
