Towards the end of April 2014 I attended a two day watercolour workshop conducted by Dhruba Mazumder, a very talented and accomplished watercolourist based in Bangalore. The workshop was very well conducted, useful and interesting. Dhruba taught through demos and one-on-one interaction with the attendees while we tried to do what had just been demonstrated to us. These are some of the exercises that we tried out:
This was an exercise in monocolour layering.
An exercise in layering, and value management using several colours.
An exercise in combining layering, and graded washes.
An exercise in brushstrokes.
Putting them all together.
