Susie will show how to give contrast and impact to your watercolour with the least amount of effort. She uses a limited palette of five colours to ensure a confident finish to any painting. The colours remain transparent no matter how you mix them. Drawing ability is not necessary...Paint quality is everything. Don’t miss this demo!
