Liberating Watercolour - Flora and Fauna
Course date:7 July 2021 in Umbria
Yet again, this amazing artist and friend is returning to Umbria in 2021 for a wonderful week of painting, demos and just total loveliness! Prices the same as last year, and given how immensely popular it was this year, (we had a waiting list) you'd better get your booking in quick as it will fill in no time!
This is the fourth year Liz has come to Arte Umbria and she is greatly looking forward to sharing her passion for flora and fauna with you. She plans that we will sketch and then paint animals and plants from life, as well as using reference photos for those which move too fast. We will use both pure watercolour and also the fabulous combination of ink and wash. Liz will help with her other passion which is urban sketching using pen and wash. Visits to local villages provide an abundance of inspiration.
Liz Chaderton lives and works in a small village in Berkshire. She works mainly in watercolour on both paper and canvas. She contributes to the Leisure Painter magazine regularly. Her first book, Painting Watercolours on Canvas was published in 2019 and her second, Painting animals in watercolour, is out in November 2020. She runs a number of weekend workshops throughout the year near Reading and tutors local art groups, aiming to help people ‘loosen up’ and enjoy the full potential of watercolour. She is enthusiastic and supportive and will tailor sessions to try to accommodate everyone’s holiday painting wishes.
Inspiration comes from the animals and plants she encounters around her in the fields and hedgerows, growing on the allotment, or living on her (regretfully imaginary) small holding.
She aims for her paintings to raise a smile and make you see again the animals and flora we so often overlook. By doing so she hopes to nurture a more caring attitude to the wider environment. She tries to capture the essence of the subject, rather than the detail, believing that what is left out is just as important as what is put in. Her paintings leave space for your imagination to wander, so are not usually set in a particular time and place.
