 Past Workshops



Creating a balanced palette of colours


Colour choices and colour combinations are the foundation of successful watercolour painting. A well-rounded set of colours in the palette ensures good colour choices at a moment’s notice and makes using a limited number of colours in any one painting easier to ensure.

This workshop is suitable for both practiced artists and beginners. It will cover a variety of watercolour techniques, using the range of colours listed below. The aim is to reinforce good practice and an understanding of colour and pigments. Reference material will be provided.

Schmincke have asked me to create the Hazel Soan Signature Edition palette with their Fine Artist Watercolours, Horadam Aquarell. The result is 8 full pans and 8 half pans in an enamel folding palette which I am delighted to recommend and excited to demonstrate. There is no obligation to use the same brand of colours but if you would like a set, it can be ordered for the workshop.


Venue:  The workshop is being held at Hazel’s Studio Gallery in Fulham, just off the Fulham Road in the Parsons Green area.



Aureolin, Indian Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, Sepia Brown, Dark Blue Indigo, Prussian Blue, Cobalt Cerulean, Cobalt Blue Deep, Ultramarine Finest, Mauve, Alizarin Crimson, Ruby Red(Permanent Rose), Cadmium Red Middle.
