One Day Workshop

WATERCOLOUR TECHNIQUES

Tutor: Adrienne Pavelka


Adrienne’s 2016 workshop was extremely popular and she has agreed to tutor again in Wellington. She is one of New Zealand’s best known watercolourists. One of her paintings is featured on the cover of Denis Robinson’s book New Zealand in Watercolour. ‘My current style,’ says Adrienne, ‘is to eliminate the detail and simplify and emphasise the effects of the sky’s rhythms and light on land or reflected water...I use a big brush and gallons of pure colour to achieve a clean, fresh effect.’ In this workshop, Adrienne will explore the fun aspects of watercolour painting and encourage you to experiment with some new techniques.

She will demonstrate her techniques for painting the glorious wet in wet skies that are such a feature of her paintings of the South Island high country.

Dates: Sunday 15 October 2017, 9:30am–4:30pm
Venue: Karori Arts Centre, 7 Beauchamp Street, Karori, Wellington
Level: All
Fee: $90
