Rediscover painting by joining a friendly Bath Watercolour Workshop and create your own flowing landscape while you chat about colour, composition and exhibitions over coffee. Experienced tutor Catherine Beale is passionate about watercolours and enjoys explaining her bold and loose “gravity painting” techniques with step-by-step demonstrations. Several colourful new workshops have been designed for the autumn/winter including Bath Cityscapes (10 October) and a number of wonderful painting retreats at Combe Grove Manor Hotel – see website for all the dates and themes. Catherine’s beginners’ workshops in January make an ideal Christmas gift or personal resolution treat.
