Mangroves Online Workshop Day
With Julie Skoda
Saturday 3rd June.
Join Unison Colour Associate Artist, Julie Skoda, on an online workshop day, painting your own version of ‘Mangroves’.
Learn to work with a watercolour underpainting, experimenting to see how pigments blend together into each other, drip and layer.
Then working with the pastels, first with the wide edge of the stick to create the beginning shapes, you’ll graduate through to the smaller, more precise marks as the layers build, ending with the bright pops of eye candy to finish the painting.
Julie will be supporting you throughout the day in the dedicated community group, including 2 Live Q&A sessions, answering all your question in detail.
