Susie Murphie has a two day workshop on 8th & 9th Sept. She has been a watercolour artist for over 30 years and loves to share her passion for watercolour painting through teaching.  She teaches a loose approach to painting. Very much ‘less is more’. I like to have fun in my lessons and do not hold back when someone is not doing the right thing… In the nicest possible way of course! I certainly give lots of praise too. I try to give students confidence in their ability and believe that you only need basic drawing skills with watercolour. If the paint is properly applied, you will end up with a lovely painting.”            http://www.susiemurphie.com/
