Learn how to paint quick and expressive watercolours with fewer brush strokes.

This can be done by making a decision by choosing one focal point of interest and then applying one decisive first brush stroke rich in pigment and leaving it alone. Working with large size brushes (sizes 12 or 16) adding shape against shape stroke by stroke and almost never going over the same area twice and in the process, leaving large areas of the paper untouched.

Our aim will be to create an atmosphere by using a limited palette, oversimplifying shapes and avoiding adding too many details regardless of the complexity of the subject matter. We will learn how to make very basic pencil sketches and later throughout the course, no pencil at all, starting painting directly with brush. This approach is fun, rather quick and gives painting that fresh and spontaneous look.
