In this course we will cover a mixture of drawing and painting, using some basic drawing mediums, and then paints, which can be watercolour, acrylics or other water based paints like gouache.

Suggested Materials list

Any set of colour paints can be used  - a basic set of colours including yellow, red, blue, brown, white if acrylics or gouache.

Brushes – I recommend that if you like to paint bigger you have bigger brushes, but I tend to use a size 2, 4, 10 and 16 in acrylics, and a size 6 and 10 round in watercolours.  We should be able to use whatever brushes you have.

Paper – if you wish to bring your own, I recommend a heavy weight cartridge or mixed media paper.

Drawing mediums – this can include pencils, pens, charcoal, felt tip pens, watercolour pencils.

Tutor: Heather Jolliffe

Heather Jolliffe is a painter and art teacher who creates colourful, fresh, joyous paintings mainly from her native surroundings of the nearby Hampshire coastline and New Forest area. Heather finds constant inspiration in the flora and fauna to be found on the saltmarsh and many shingle beaches that form this particular stretch of coastline along the Solent, through all the seasons, combining spectacular landscape views with colour and light, textures and mark making.

Heather studied Fine Art painting at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art and then in London at the prestigious Royal Academy Schools of Art and has returned to her place of birth in Hampshire to establish herself as an atmospheric coastal painter and inspiring art teacher.  She has taught widely, with a variety of art sessions across the age groups, in schools, colleges and community locations, providing practical, informed art guidance to help people create their own art.
