Marrakech in Watercolour

Join Julie's step by step demonstration inspired by her travels to Marrakech.
Completed in 1603 El Badi Palace was once quite beautiful and although it is now a crumbling ruin it still retains it's charm, with the added light and shade effects.
In this video demonstration you will learn how to :-
*Interpret light and shade
*Mix colours using a limited palette
*Build up washes of colour wet on dry
*Produce variegated washes using wet on wet techniques
*Build confidence to approach a subject matter and using Julie's guidance create your own interpretation.
Please send in your finished painting to the Student Gallery. We love to see the results!
