August's Watercolour Workshop
In a well-attended August workshop, which was also a DIY session because four Northumbrian scribes demonstrated during the day, we learned about watercolour paints and painting techniques. Susan Moor topped and tailed the day with practical experiments using paints to explore making dry and wet washes, the properties of different pigments and whether painting red on top of blue had a different effect to painting blue on top of red. She also had us try different watercolour papers to see how they felt.
