    Pen & Wash plus Watercolour Urban Sketching with Harry Westera
    Cost: $750.00 painters
    $500.00 non-painting partners
    $600.00 per person twin share (only one room available)

    We’re heading to Sydney for the Long Weekend in June for a weekend of sketching the urban landscape around the historical Rocks area plus a whole lot more! Enjoy three nights accommodation right in The Rocks with a short stroll to Sydney Harbour, Observatory Hill, The Rocks Markets, Circular Quay, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. We will also be just a short distance away from the Art Gallery of NSW and the heart of Sydney CBD.

    Your tutor for this tour is Harry Westera and the focus of this tour will be on easy simplified sketches around the Rocks and Sydney Harbour foreshores with pen and wash plus watercolour. If watercolour is fairly new to you, you might like to try ‘pen and wash’. Here, the emphasis is on doing a drawing in pen and then adding some washes in coloured ink or watercolour. Or you can use oil paints or other medium which you are familiar with.
