Our watercolour portrait session with Artlis Studios offers you the opportunity to experiment with watercolour concentrates, water color pencils and acrylic highlighting. We experiment with shadowing, reflections and common watercolour techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, pooling, dripping and colour lifting and blending.
This workshop will be painted on thick watercolour paper, rather than a canvas as this is a more suitable medium for this kind of artwork.

If You Can Dream It You Can Do It……
A vision board is where you store the dreams you have for your future, so you can see them every day, a visual reminder of what you most want from the world. Being able to see them every day helps you plan small goals that point towards your dreams.
Visualising what you want most can actually help train your brain to be able to make it happen.
Share your evening with a group of likeminds creating a vision board based on your own personal goals.
