"Art is not what
you see, but what you make others see.” (Edgar Degas).
An experienced tutor, Ken has given many demonstrations, workshops and classes. Since the beginning of 2016 he has been running a successful back-to-basics course in various art media for members of Dalgety Bay Art Club. Previously he provided a number of structured courses in watercolour painting at Dunfermline Art Club.
He offers demonstrations
and workshops to art groups, clubs and societies within a 50-mile radius of his
home in Dalgety Bay, Fife.
Here are some suggested topics
for demos/workshops which Ken can offer:
- basic watercolour
techniques (for beginners)
- composing a painting (for beginners/improvers)
- mixing colours and using colour
contrast (for beginners/improvers)
- portraying light and shade
in watercolours (for improvers/intermediate level)
- painting watercolours from
photographs (for improvers/intermediate level)*
- achieving realistic detail
in watercolours (for intermediate/advanced level
(*The topic "painting from photographs" is available either as a painting demo or, for clubs owning projectors/screens, as an illustrated talk using Ken's laptop and photo-editing software.)
