What is watercolour painting in nature?
It is an initiative to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a few hours and return to a calmer state of mind. It is to spend the time observing nature and recharging our batteries. Through the creative activity, we capture the moment we are living. We let the landscape affect us and inspire us. During the painting, we take in the beauty of the landscape with more focused attention, and each person creates a watercolour painting based on their mood.
What will I be doing?
Together we will go for a short walk, which will help us first to get closer to the emotional state we need to create. We can then tune in to the beauty of the forest and nature. After a 15 minute walk, we arrive at the painting site, where we settle down. Everyone chooses a detail that they would like to paint.
And if I cannot paint?
If you have never painted with watercolours before, this is not a problem as Zsuzsanna, the programme leader, will be very patient and happy to help you. Her professional approach comes from fifteen years of experience as a visual educator.
