FOUR-DAY WORKSHOP: Water and reflections in colour pencil

Blue Wrens- Come in, the water's fine. By Janet Matthews.

Venue: Janet’s Studio - Narre Warren North, Victoria

Dates: 8th - 11th July

Times: 10am to 3.30pm

In this workshop series, Janet will concentrate on different ways to create water.  Information like the theories needed for reflections and shadows will also be learnt.

Janet teaches in a step-by-step process, which allows all levels of skill to easily follow with wonderful results.

Each day will have a different type of water as the focus including-

  • Moving and still water (the latter being prone to the reflections.)
  • The different colours of water - river water may be blue but a puddle is muddy and brown.
  • Reflections in moving and still water.


Day 1 Still water- two colour variations - blue and brown.

Day 2 Moving water - ripples and undulations

Day 2 Workshop will continue with dinner and an evening ‘Presentation and talk’

Day 3 Reflections in still water
