07 Watercolour: the painting rules and how to break them with John Haycraft

Be prepared to be bold and make mistakes, combined with repeated practice and experimentation, to gain new understanding. Painting inside in the mornings and plein air in the afternoon (weather permitting) learn the essentials of composition, contour drawing, the power of greys, how to use complementary colours, managing perspective and most importantly, how to break the rules and paint with freedom and emotion.
John Haycraft is interested in watercolour as a medium for expressive painting, particularly well adapted for plein-air. An experienced teacher, John encourages his students to look for the mood and atmosphere in a painting. John is the author of 3 books as well as a regular exhibitor and award winner and is represented by Maunsell Wickes at Barry Stern Galleries in Paddington.
