with Rob Wigham

- 50 British pounds£50
We’ll be painting a watercolour view of the old sea breaks against the surf on this beautiful Moray beach. 10:30 - 4:30 All materials included The one-day course will provide personalised instruction, mentorship and support for new or intermediate-grade watercolour painters, using a daytime view of the beach with some white clouds in the sky. This will allow us not only to produce a nice painting but will cover as many of the general aspects of watercolour as possible to make it a really useful day! No previous watercolour experience is necessary but Rob will try to work with you to make the most of whatever experience in the medium you might have already. We will work using a series of demonstrations of each stage, followed by your own painting of that stage. Rob will be on hand throughout with friendly advice and help so that hopefully everyone will produce an accomplished painting by the end of the day! No previous knowledge of watercolour is needed or assumed. Stretched watercolour paper of around A3 size or slightly larger on a suitable board will be required. If you have your own art materials, please bring them along as it will help you to work with your own things. However, the Moray Art Centre will supply a range of pigments and brushes as required if you don’t already have them. About Rob: Rob is a self-taught watercolour artist who, after many years of learning the medium as a hobby during his career as an RAF pilot, turned professional 11 years ago after leaving the Service. Since then he has produced hundreds of paintings of the Moray area and coastline, mostly landscapes and seascapes which have also been added to Rob’s extensive range of fine art giclee prints. He also paints military aircraft and sometimes, when his arm is twisted, pet portraits! His work is known for its detail as well as for its bright colours and impactful contrast of tones. Rob is also an experienced teacher Rob’s work is in private collections around the world and he and his wife, Sharon, supply their range of high-quality prints from their home workshop in Mosstodloch, near Fochabers.
