Watercolour workshops online

This week I took part in our second ‘Urban Sketching with Edinburgh Sketcher and Cassandra Harrison’ workshop on Zoom and had a great time.

Local artist and teach Cassandra Harrison and I thought we would set up an online fortnightly workshop where people could join us and create artwork looking at different mediums and techniques.

We will be sharing our tips and skills learnt over the years and also inviting guests on to share their thoughts about art and the city of Edinburgh.

We hope this will grow into a small community of creative types at all levels who can then share and learn together twice a month.

This week we were joined by comedien and Leither Jo Caulfield who introduced three of her favourite Leith buildings, which we all then captured in watercolours.

Above are my drawings as I showed people how to layer watercolour washes, leaving each one to dry and working on all three at the same time.

The results were amazing and to see some of the art out workshops produced go to the workshop facebook page at Urban Sketching with Edinburgh Sketcher and Cassandra Harrison

Above is a screen shot of our artists on zoom. If you have been on my ‘in person’ workshops in Edinburgh before then you will know that I always like to get a photo of everyones drawings at the end. It is a great way to see everyones unique take on the same subject, and to see how they all have merits. This is the zoom equivalent!

Join us on the next workshop by booking a place via the link below, each 75 minute class is £10 (£7.50 concessions) and on the 1st September we have architect David Blaikie joining us.

Collaborative online workshops now available

So excited to be launching these fortnightly Zoom workshops with Edinburgh artist and teacher Cassandra Harrison.

With Covid-19 stopping all my outdoor events I have had to stop all walking workshops until later in the year. However to keep everyone being creative I have started running online workshops which you can join in on from the comfort of your own home.

Cassandra Harrison is a well known Edinburgh artist and teacher and together we will be capturing urban scenes using various mediums and techniques. The first one is on Tuesday 4th August 6-7.15pm where we will be looking at perspectives.

Follow the link to book this limited class for just £10 (£7.50 concessions). You will also find more details about our future sessions and a list of a few materials for you to get ready prior to Tuesday evening.

We will have QnA time for you to ask any questions about our work and also have some special guests dropping in on some of the sessions.

Please share and we look forward to seeing you there.
