Watercolor as a medium is a delightful and relatively easy art to learn.

Learn to paint in watercolor at Heartroom Gallery. Our instructosr come from a variety of backgrounds and are experienced at teaching watercolour painting from beginners to advanced.

The class teaches you to use these water-based paints to develop your unique and beautiful expression of art effortlessly.

Some of the basic techniques you will learn in the class include:

Wet-On-Wet and Wet-On-Dry

The most fundamental techniques used by artists are the wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry methods. While wet-on-wet produces a blended effect, wet-on-dry is used to differentiate between objects or elements.

Flat Wash

Suitable for doing backgrounds, the flat wash is done using a big flat brush and pre-mixed (paint and water) medium. If you would like to give some texture to the background, try sprinkling some salt, the results are amazing!

Gradated Wash

Also done using a flat paint brush, the gradated wash is carried out by adding a little water with each stroke. This technique produces a beautiful ombré effect.

Dry Brush

The dry brush technique is when you use watercolor paints without adding water to them. The dry brush technique creates a coarse, textured effect, almost like broken crayons. When done on top of a flat wash or just a plain water wash, dry brush technique produces blurry, blended colors.
