Water colour and mixed media painting course in Helmsley Walled Garden’s Orchid House.
For people who like an element of surprise and daring in their work; a dash of colour, line of ink, resist of water over oil, a sliver of gold… This is water colour with a difference. Suitable for experienced artists who want to experiment and loosen up their style and adventurous beginners.

What to expect
These two day courses will be experimental and non-traditional in their approach; using a selection of mixed media, including inks and oil pastels as well as watercolour. There will be an emphasis on the consideration of composition, mark making, contrast and colour.


Who the workshop is for
The workshops are aimed at adventurous beginners as well as experienced artists. Whatever your level of experience, you will be pushed to experiment and explore a different way of working.

Just bring an open mind and a sense of play – every workshop is different and Lesley works to tailor classes to suit individual needs. If you feel you have special requirements, get in touch.
