About your course
Glynis is a stimulating and exciting demonstrator of watercolour techniques and has over 20 years experience in both teaching and demonstrating painting worldwide. Our next course is in Florence from 14-16 March 2014
With the publication of her books, including the Watercolour Workshop series published by DKV, she is able to teach using valuable reference guides and illustrations of her own work and unique painting style.
Glynis has an easy and well-crafted approach and will show you, step by step how to build and develop wonderful paintings.
Glynis’s artistic ability became evident whilst she was still a small child and by her early teens she had experimented with a wide range of painting mediums and styles of expression. Later, during her years of study, she found she was drawn towards the medium of watercolour and became fascinated by what she saw as an exciting and fresh approach to portraiture.
Through constantly exploring the way in which the unique qualities of watercolour can be used to produce light and vitality in her work, Glynis has developed a skill in portraiture that captures not only the subject’s likeness but also his very soul in a single moment of time.
Glynis has experience of teaching in all mediums so don’t hesitate to contact us if you prefer oils or pastels.
