Learn to paint a Looser Watercolour ~ a four week Series with local artist, Lyn Evans
Join Lyn in the Swallow Barn for these four Thursday mornings in Febuary to help you become looser in your watercolour practice, through structured exercises, gentle feedback, guidance and encouragement.
Lyn says ' We will use watercolours and acrylic inks and experiment in producing exciting and vibrant landscapes, florals and abstracts. Beginners will love having the ability to produce lovely work quickly and those with more experience will enjoy learning new techniques and putting them into practise. We will start at 9.30 am and paint till 12.30 with coffee to help concentration! If you are new to painting I think you will love this as much as workshop painters do! '
These painting classes are suitable for the beginner and improver, will help you to gain confidence in your ability to paint and use Watercolours and Ink. We love listening in on Lyn's classes up in the Swallow Barn - always lots of fun.

About the Tutor: I have painted throughout most of my life, from my years at Sunderland Art College to the present day, I’m inspired mostly by the more unusual colours of nature. The early morning or late evening light, particularly during the Autumn months, is a favourite. I paint in oil, pastel and watercolours, each one bringing a different quality to the work. So often it is the subject that will dictate the medium used. Pastel is unsurpassed for colour and texture while oils excel in quality and the ability to move or blend.
Watercolour, with its more delicate character, is ideal for the beautiful misty days that we have in plenty in Cumbria.I paint everything and anything but landscape is my first love.So the countryside in which I live and the quality of light enjoy are present in all my work. My influences are Chien Chung Wei, the Taiwanese watercolourist, Iain Stewart, the Scottish watercolourist (both of whom I have painted with) and Casey Klahn the American pastelist.
