Painting Water colours with Dale & Mel Elliott

We recently held our fourteenth painting course for the year which was a water colour course and we had a super group of artists.   This is a three day course where the participants can enjoy our studios and the after hour painting activities.   On Monday night we had a super dinner at De Villiers Country Lodge and on Tuesday evening (as is the norm on each course) Dale and Janny shared their home with the group.

Dale and Mel took the artists through a series of exciting techniques such as the conventional wash, wet-in-wet exercises and their happy accident serendipitous approach on the last day to water colour painting.   Mel touches on the air brush and framing with the pupils.  He and Dale give some interesting talks on Art in South Africa as well as the marketing of one’s art.

Below are some photographs of the participants and what they got up to.   For further details on our courses please contact us on: 028 840 2927
