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. Conor Walton will work on a five week block of painting from the model as directly as possible, without underpainting or preliminary drawing, starting with a limited harmonic palette, drawing in colour, working from the general to the particular and aiming from the beginning for the final result. Blaise Smith RHA will lead a final 5 week block in direct observation. Tutors: Seán Molloy, Conor Walton, Blaise Smith RHA, Colin Martin RHA.

This module will be delivered in the RHA Studio with several classes delivered via Zoom.

The completion of all 6 modules are awarded with a CPD Diploma in Painting and Drawing, Technological University Dublin, Minor Award with a NQF Level 8.
