Workshop Description:  For each of the 2 days, Scott will start with warm up exercises, working on the techniques that will be used in the watercolour paintings that we will create together. He will break the painting down into sections.

For the first day, we will be painting this image of beautiful painting Scott calls ‘Magical Manning Park’. He has done this painting several times and each time it comes out different. 

For the second day, we will learn his techniques for field grasses, distant mountains and practice more on sky/clouds.

About the Instructor: Scott Pleydell-Pearce

Scott has been an artist all his life and at 55 years old has packed in a lot of experience. His working career is in the world of animation, where he has worked as an animator, storyboard artist, character designer, art director and now works as a Director for TV series animation.Scott Pleydell-Pearce

He started painting in watercolours 12 years ago as a means to get creative freedom separate from his career. Self-taught, Scott threw himself into the enormous challenge that is learning watercolours. His style can be described as bold, energetic, and dynamic. He has the ability to draw and paint very accurately and also turn his hand to a looser style as well. He is inspired by many things in the world around him, figures, architecture, landscapes, seascapes and most of all, loves to capture colour and light.

Scott's enthusiasm for painting has led him to teaching others. He loves sharing his knowledge of how to work with watercolour.
