In this plein-air workshop students will learn how to create an atmospheric watercolour from direct observation. Each day will feature a unique location from the village of Dunboyne. The workshop will be based on a 3-part demonstration where Kasper will explain his techniques and assist the students along the way.

During the 2-days the following will be covered:

- Simplifying shapes in the composition

- The importance of tonal value, rather than colour

- Working with wet-into-wet and dry brush techniques to achieve different effects.

- The value of connecting shapes in the painting.

- How to include details in the painting such as figures and cars.

The Tutor

Kasper Zier is an award winning watercolour artist living and working in Dublin. His watercolours are a mesmerizing blend of realism and poetry, elevating the mundane into a dreamy quality. 

Using a masterful combination of clear colours, free expressive brushstrokes, and 'lost and found' edges, Kasper artfully captures the interplay of light on the city's buildings and streets. 

The end result is a unique painting full of atmosphere and character, carrying his personal touch and creating a lasting impression on the viewer. 

Kasper is a member of the The Water Colour Society of Ireland
