About this event

In this watercolour painting ‘country kookaburra’ workshop you will learn how to put in a subtle background, how to lift the paint to create the colour variance in the wings, as well as effective ways to capture eyes, and texture of the wooden post.

Sue Battis will guide you through the process to work with watercolours, with step-by-step instructions to paint your own country kookaburra, using a reference photo, with permission of the photographer Jo Willo. You will also learn how to best use the materials provided, while sharing a few relaxing hours with other creative people.

At the end of the class, you will take away your own painting masterpiece.

Country Kookaburra Watercolour Workshop


Meet the artist:

Sue Battis studied art at QCA and learned watercolour painting and design and graduated after 3 years of study. Sue resumed her love of painting several years ago, after attending classes and getting to know other artists in Brisbane. She finds it relaxing and meditative. Sue began teaching drawing and painting at Scattered Arts Gallery, located at Camp Hill. She also has her work available for purchase through Manly Harbour Gallery and Art House at Bowen Hills and was invited to join in the opening of Kaye West Studios also at Camp Hill in August last year.

Over the last few years, she has created a range of archival reproductions of her artwork which you can discover on her Esty Store, Sue Battis Art
