Julie's two day Watercolour workshop will encourage you to work more freely with your watercolour. Julie will demonstrate various watercolour techniques and you will learn about a lot about colour mixing and combinations, tone and composition. You will also complete several finished paintings during the weekend.
Julie studied painting at the the University of Reading where she was taught by Sir Terry Frost. Her expressive style is combined with an imaginative story and her observations from nature.
Julie walks by the coast for miles each day and observations and memories from these walks are used to create her work. The studio is where she will have many pieces in progress at the same time. Drawing and painting outside is an important part of Julie’s practice. She has been Artist in Residence at the Observatory, working on the sea wall at Lymington’s nature reserve and then at Bucklers Hard, part of the Beaulieu Estate. The challenge of working in the elements provides great inspiration and brings immediacy to Julie’s work.
Julie exhibits widely and has received numerous awards for her work. Further information can be found on her website.
