SAA Live - Jo Allsopp Workshop - Highland Cow in Watercolour & Ink

Who does not love wildlife? Jo’s favourite subjects to paint are animals – usually big, with bold colours and a loose painterly style, capturing mooovement and moooood (pardon the puns)!

On this workshop, you will lightly sketch in pencil an outline of a highland cow, omitting detail where you can.  You’ll then be using lots of wet into wet watercolour to create some initial patterns and blooms.  Continuing on with glazing and layering techniques to build up your highland cow before completing with a rigger brush and ink for the finer details (and a bit of spatter for good measure!).

Join us for a LIVE workshop

You’ve watched the videos at home, now get the best seat in the house and paint along in person at an SAA workshop. We’ve got a wide range of artists and mediums to choose from, so have a look at the upcoming schedule and book your ticket today!
