Given this is the Sunshine Coast we will explore the colours of the Coast and concepts to highlight your favourite components of your beach, waterfall or coastal river mouth.

Wyn will share her techniques and concepts to enable you to consider the beauty of the Coast landscape and create your memories and impressions of that landscape.

You are welcome to bring a favourite image of a Coastal Holiday Spot you love –
and you will be able to apply your own twists to the image with Wyn’s help!

Materials to Bring:

  • 1 sheet Arches 300gsm Watercolour Paper, OR
  • Some 300gsm Arches pad A3

Brushes – at least those below –

but please bring whatever you have in your kit:

Other Tools:

  • Hair dryer to dry your work between layers
  • Backing board to tape your sample papers down (core board or similar from Bunnings) and tape to manage your paper – we don’t use an easel we tape the paper to the backing board so we can move the paper and tilt or turn as needed to manage your paint and water.
