Watercolour is a painting which uses the water soluble colours. It has the ability to bond to various surfaces such as paper and papyrus, plastic or leather, fabric, wood and canvas. It does not quite cover up so the foundation typically shows through.

The watercolour painting course focuses on the present moment. You need to concentrate – what you can do now, you cannot do later. And it is also based on a coincidence so you need to stay relaxed.
