SAA Live - Trevor Osborne Workshop - Burt in Watercolour

We’re very excited to bring you this watercolour workshop from Trevor Osborne where you’ll be creating a portrait of the gorgeous dog, Burt!

Trevor says:  “My earliest experiences with watercolour were with John Blockley.  From him I learnt that a watercolour is first a painting and secondly a representation.  In my paintings of animals I am trying to get the character before the detail.

My approach is based on a simple drawing and then loose and expressive brushwork.  Burt is a great example and gives plenty of scope for getting his fun, robust beauty.”

We hope you enjoy this fantastic workshop!
