Painting Figures in Watercolour with Catherine Macdiarmid


In this creative class, you will learn the basic principles of painting people in watercolour; including the drawing out, mixing of skin tones, painting clothing, application of paint, and composition. Through demonstration, you will have the chance to learn from the artist’s personal approach, as well as seek inspiration from other artists’ references. Working from a still image, you will be guided to create your own final piece of work.

Catherine MacDiarmid has exhibited widely including in the BP Portrait Award and was a semi -finalist in the Sky Portrait Artists of the Year in 2019. Catherine has 28 years’ experience teaching art courses.
