Pastels and Watercolour

East Anglian artist John Tookey PS IEA has had an extremely successful painting career and is also an experienced tutor who has conducted many courses over the years. He works in several mediums, but mainly in watercolour, oil and pastel and is justly famous for his dynamic bold watercolours that sparkle with light. His paintings combine spontaneity, freshness and a wonderfully direct approach.
John has shown with most of the major art societies at the FBA, Mall Galleries, London. Notable Prizes include: Brandler Galleries Award (RWA) Pastel Society of Canada Award (Pastel Society) Buzzacott Award (Pastel Society) 2008. He is a member of the Pastel Society UK and the Institute of East Anglian Artists.
Both watercolour and pastel are excellent mediums for capturing the fleeting effects of nature.
Participants on this course can work in either medium or switch from one to the other, or even combine the two.
There will be demonstrations in both watercolour and pastel, advice on how to achieve fresher livelier results, composition and tonal values.
We will be working either at nearby locations on the coast, or in the studio as the weather allows.
Individual tuition will be given throughout the course.
