A watercolour specialist will be offering taster sessions free of charge to teach people her techniques and skills.

Painter Fiona Pruden will be showing people in St Albans her skills to help them master the art of water colour.

Fiona’s session will take place at the Trestle Arts Base on April 18 from 2pm. The session is open to all to ask advice and queries.

Fiona said: “It’s well known that people believe water colours to be the most difficult medium to use.

“I believe if you understand a few simple principles and observe a couple of rules then it’s much easier to avoid the pitfalls that can easily befall the inexperienced or slight apprehensive water colourists and cause a painting to fail.”
