The course will require a basic competence in painting with either watercolours, acrylics or oils. Initially you will learn to paint a calm sea and a clear sky, with a beach in the foreground. You will later build on this with the introduction of waves and clouds. At each stage Martin will demonstrate the technique needed, and you will practise through a series of exercises, before going on to try your new skills producing simple seascapes.
