A watercolour workshop has been developed to accompany Clare Tebboth’s exhibition at Preston Bissett Nurseries as part of Bucks Art Weeks.

WILD AND FREE WATERCOLOURS – Monday 19th June 2023

A fascinatation with wild flowers and hedgerows has been the main inspiration for artist Clare Tebboth’s work.

An experienced watercolourist, Clare has been teaching for many years and she loves sharing her techniques in her lively, informative workshops.

This special workshop has been developed to accompany her exhibition at Preston Bissett Nurseries as part of Bucks Art Weeks. It is suitable for beginners or those with more experience who want to learn this technique.

You will need to bring some reasonable quality watercolour brushes including a size 10 round brush or larger (it must come to a fine point.)

  • Artist’s watercolour paint – tubes or pans
  • Watercolour paper minimum A4 size 300gm (140 lb), cold press or NOT surface – this is a good one https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/seawhite-watercolour-paper-pad-a4/6432871000.html
  • A large plate (white) or mixing palette
  • Waterpot (icecream tub size!), kitchen roll

You will explore some of the techniques for painting beautiful flowers and plants including looking at:

  • brush work and the use of different types of brushes
  • colour mixing
  • controlling the flow of paint
  • using masking to preserve areas of the paper

Throughout the morning you will produce a number of small watercolour paintings.
