Watercolour Workshop With Jane Blundell


Saturday and Sunday, 12/13 march 2016

Whether you are new to watercolour or have been on the watercolour journey for some time but are looking for a more comprehensive study of this fascinating medium, this weekend Watercolour Workshop is for you. Day one will suit absolute beginners through to intermediate - don't worry however if you feel you are more advanced, Jane will have something for the more skilled also.  The second day will also be busy and consist an introduction to a range of subjects painted en plein air at Bunnyconnellen.

Jane Blundell has been painting in watercolour for over 35 years and is a professional artist and teacher and a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute. She is a passionate sketcher and while she works in all mediums her favourite is watercolour. She paints anything – urban landscapes, flowers, rocks, people, still life, whatever – usually from life. Her understanding of colour and pigments is based on years of personal research and exploration, and can be seen in her two self-published books: Watercolour Mixing Charts and The Ultimate Mixing Palette: a World of Colour.

Join us at our rustic cellar door the ‘Who’d Have Thought It’ and enjoy this informative, but relaxed weekend watercolour workshop.   The workshop can be booked as a whole or each day taken separately, we are however limited to 15 guests each day.
