Watch Keith produce a great watercolour on video — then come and paint with him in person!

Painting by Keith Hornblower, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany Italy.I really like seeing the process of creation of a great painting, so I loved watching one of Watermill painting tutor Keith Hornblower’s demonstrations recently and marvelling on the progression from the beginnings above to the final painting of a Venice street scene below.Painting by Keith Hornblower, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany Italy.

You can watch the whole of the video by clicking here and, even better, come and watch Keith yourself – and learn how to do it on his watercolour course at The Watermill next Summer.

Keith will be joining us for a week-long watercolour course from Saturday 13 August to Saturday 20 August 2016 and we look forward to creating some memorable paintings. Why not join him and do the same?

Keith painting picKeith Hornblower is an acclaimed English painter in watercolour, teaching and demonstrating to art societies and universities in the UK with enthusiasm and great humour. His approach is dynamic and spontaneous, dispelling the fear of white paper and encouraging people to let go and have fun. He stresses the importance of capturing the light and observation of tonal values, often using a very limited palette of colours to make things easier for his students.

Some comments from some of Keith’s previous students: “A magician with paint, your paintings always have the most wonderful light.” “Brilliant! This is what watercolour is all about for me — so free and fresh. What fun for you and your very lucky audience.” “A great tutor and so very helpful with techniques and tips.”
