Accredited, 5 Credits

This will be a 15-week term organised around three blocks of five weeks. The first block will concentrate on the medium of watercolour led by Seán Molloy. Molloy will cover techniques employed in master painting from the 19th Century to the present and students will work directly from observation to create preparatory works or finished studies.

Marcel Vidal will lead a 5 week block on the use of thin glazing techniques to build a full range of colour, referencing photography and still life as source material.

Blaise Smith RHA will lead a final 5 week block in direct observation.

Tutors: Seán Molloy, Marcel Vidal, Blaise Smith RHA, Colin Martin RHA.
