Join artist Zela Bissett for Wet-on wet watercolour workshop as part of her current exhibition 'Behind The Shine'.

Wet-on wet watercolour is a technique which celebrates the fluid qualities of watercolour medium.

It is especially suitable for landscapes and seascapes, where the soft edges and blended colours suggest, rather than define, the subject, leaving scope for the viewer’s imagination.

Zela’s workshop will cover the preparation of paper, applying successive washes of colour and working in sequence from the distance to the foreground.

Zela studied watercolours with distinguished watercolourist David Taylor at McGregor Summer School in Toowoomba in 2019 and in 2020 returned to Toowoomba to study gouache with Noami White. Zela has used techniques taught by both these practitioners in representing the landscapes in her exhibition, 'Behind the Shine'.

Participants will produce several works, including one finished composition and some others to complete in their own time.

All materials will be supplied along with some notes to help remember the main themes. 

Where: Gatakers Creative Space

When: Sunday 3 March, 2024

Time: 10am to 1pm

Cost: $55
