Painting a Self Portrait in Watercolours
with Ann Froshaug, Painter
The aim of the workshop is to show how basic watercolour technique combined with simple drawing technique will enable you to produce a pleasing likeness.
We will explore how to draw what you see and find ways by using a selected palette of colours to produce subtle and lovely images of yourself..and from this be more confident about painting other portraits for example of family and friends.
