Create loose, luminous watercolours as Catherine introduces you to her "gravity painting" techniques using a colourful lakeside scene. Hear tips on composition and watch Catherine as she demonstrates step-by-step how to pool paint in water to merge colours and create soft foliage from watermarks, then, layer paint as it dries and lift-off surface ripples.

Let your imagination flow and take home a watery, colourful 'masterpiece'.
