Watercolor Workshop
with Stefan Gadnell
May 2022 in Norrtälje Konsthall (Art Gallery)

Welcome to an inspiring course where we work with composition, shapes, light and color. You can try on different watercolor techniques -wet on wet, dry brush, etc. – and get tips on colors and materials used in watercolor painting. The course is suitable for both beginners and advanced students.

The theme is “Outdoor Environments” which gives us the challenges of how to create light and contrasts, and work with shadows and depth in your watercolour. Bring photos (prints or digital) of places and environments which you want to paint. There are many prepared exercises but you also get time to work on your own.

The course is held in Norrtälje Konsthall (Art Gallery)


Bring your sketch book if you have one, watercolor paints, brushes, pencil and eraser, watercolor paper is included in the course fee. There are easels, mugs, hairdryers and coffee of course.


Stefan Gadnell is a trained Art Teacher and experienced watercolor painter.

2900 SEK. The course fee includes watercolor paper and “fika”.

Maximum 10
