Colour first, then draw the lines! Reverse colouring takes the idea of traditional coloring and turns it on its head – instead of focusing on coloring inside the lines, the colour comes first, then you make the design. It’s a different approach to a time-honoured activity and will tickle the fancy of your creative inner child.

In this workshop we start by creating whimsical watercolour backgrounds using diverse materials that create spontaneous and richly textural effects. No experience with watercolour is required.

These results will then be our inspiration as we begin outlining, doodling and shading with pen & ink to intuitively tease out whatever forms and shapes we see in the swirls of colour. We will work with the theme of spring flowers and their colourful energy but who knows … perhaps a bird, a tree or something equally wonderful will decide to make an appearance!

The magic of this process is in what gets unexpectedly revealed and discovering what is hidden. There are no rules and no “staying inside the lines”, so each image will be a unique invitation to slow down, let your mind drift, and be surprised by your own creativity.

This is a fun, interactive workshop suited to anyone, even if you are a complete beginner. If you can doodle you can do it! All you need to do is relax and fully enjoy the process in the calm ambience of my nature-filled studio.

By the end of the workshop you will have two or more “reverse colourings”, plus the skills to continue making your own intuitive creations.

Fee includes all materials. This is an in-person workshop limited to only 6 participants which means you get lots of one-on-one help.
