Dominique Zip Sky

Watercolour On Washi

with Dominique Prevost

  • Saturday May 11 10am - 4pm
  • $120

When we think of watercolours we usually imagine paintings of landscapes, florals and the like, but painting a picture is not what this workshop is about. Instead, it's about playing with how watercolour and different types of washi interact and learning how to use those interactions in your work. With Dominique's playful yet considered approach you will learn ways of applying colour and texture to washi with watercolour. You will experience how different washi weights, absorbencies and textures affect watercolour washes and mark-making, while building a collection of painted papers for later use in collage or as reference for future painting. This is all about process and discovery through guided experimentation. We'll provide a variety of kinds of washi for you to use and you'll bring your own watercolours and brushes. We'll supplement with some of our watercolour sets, brushes and a few additional mark-making materials for contrast.
