The group is now running at full capacity, so if you are interested in joining us could you first contact the convener (preferably by email) for information regarding possible additional sessions.

Mixing Warm and Cool Colours

During our recent Watercolour course, tutor Pam Horne introduced us to the Colour Wheel and the principles of colour mixing. Members will find it useful to have this for reference and it is therefore reproduced above.
Very many thanks to Pam for many hours of patient tuition; irrespective of our previous experience, we have all taken a lot from her course.

Watercolour Checklist

1. Have I provided enough tonal contrast?
2. Is the strongest tonal contrast concentrated at the focal point?
3. Have I ensured there is some contrast in shapes and directions?
4. Have I repeated elements, such as form and colour, sufficiently elsewhere in the work?
5. Have I also applied sufficient variation in the elements to avoid dullness?
6. Are the left and right sides of the work balanced?
7. Have I alternated between still and busy sections?
8. Are there some linear elements as well as surface areas to enliven the work?
9. Have I limited my use of colours?
10. Have I tried not to narrate too much in a single painting, but kept my story simple?
