TO THE SLUGA BEGINNERS CLASS OF 2018
Just a note to say a big thanks to you for attending my beginners class at my gallery in Yackandandah last week.
I did my best to try and get some import information across to you, but please remember that it will take time for these things to start working for you but I encourage you to stick with it.
Anyway, below are some links to some notes and other bits and pieces.
Thanks again and I hope to see you again in another workshop.
If you are interested in receiving my newsletter, you can sign up in using the form at the bottom of the page.
As I may have mentioned, I will be setting up a youtube channel over the next few months where you will see film of some of the things I covered, but also some other topics.
So here is a question you could answer for me to help me.
If you were to type a watercolour question into google - what question would you ask?
The name of the photo editing app that you can put on your phone or tablet that I mentioned in class - TOOLWIZ
WEBSITE OF TECHNICAL INFO
Here is a link to the website of the guy that has done all kinds of tests on paints etc. Remember that it is a huge website and don't get too caught up in the details...you will never paint. Click here
Here is a link to the art shop I use in the UK to buy my large tubes of watercolour paint.
If you are signed up to my newsletter, you will hear about my other workshops as I decide on them. Workshops for next year will be posted on my website towards the end of the year. Next year I am offering a workshop in Tuscany as usual and of course my Croatian tour (which is a relaxing holiday with some painting thrown in). I do enjoy the Tuscany workshop, but the Croatian tour is more relaxed and casual. You can find out more about the Tuscany workshop here and more about the Croatian tour here.

HOW TO CHANGE THE COLOUR DIMENSIONS
A summary of different ways to change the dimensions of colour
I was going to add my colour wheel, but I think this one is better. I have marked the position of a few of my colours in red. However, you will probably be able to figure out where your colours should go.

Remember, this is my order. You can have any order you like, but keep it the same all the time
Here is the huge list of complimentary colours according to the handprint website. Remember to ignore the brands. It is just to give you an idea of possible colours to try.
