Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Henry Scott Tuke is recognised today as a master colourist. Working en plein air, he used a dazzling palette to paint his subjects, working not only in oils but in watercolour and pastel too. Tuke was inspired by new artistic techniques from Europe and used his fascination for 'colour tone' to heighten the chromatic effects of light and atmosphere on his subjects.

Led by artist-in-residence Nneka Uzoigwe, and working from a live model, this outdoor workshop will explore the relationship between the figure, colour and light, with opportunities to develop your colour mixing skills, study the effects of light on the body and capture atmospheric conditions. The course will be delivered plein air (outside) across the Watts Gallery estate.

All materials and equipment will be provided.
