About this class:

   This class aims to show keep things as simple as possible. You’ll be working with a set of six tube paints, and you don’t need to know how to mix colours. We will just be adapting colours if we need to on this class.

If you desperately want to learn how to mix colours from scratch then you might want to sign up for the Beginners +1 workshop instead, where we concentrate much more on the art of creating our own colours from just three tubes, and wet in wet technique.  However, you’ll get a better overview of the two main watercolour techniques from this course for Watercolour for Absolute Beginners.
