I am running a 3 day painting workshop in July from my home and studio nestled in the Cotswold Countryside. The course is designed for people looking to bring a new confidence to their work, but it is also suitable for complete beginners to get inspired with colour and form. We will be working directly from my garden and looking to the wider landscape beyond.
With careful guidance and demonstrations you will soon be making vibrant and colourful sketches and studies in charcoal, pen and ink and gouache. Gouache lends itself perfectly for making preliminary studies. With this ‘library’ of sketches you will make a larger scale oil painting. I will show you how to translate your drawings into expressive, lively and colourful flower and landscape paintings.
I will help and encourage you every step, giving you the tools to leave here with a mind full of possibility and the urge to make more work.
The day will start at 10am and run until 4pm with a break for a delicious homemade lunch – hopefully eaten in the garden. I will keep your energy levels up through the day with snacks, maybe a piece of cake and drinks to enable full focus!
On the last day we will give an hour at the end of the day to talk through, share thoughts and recap, so you return home with a sense of achievement and inspired to continue painting.
3 days painting tuition with demonstrations, some materials, lunch and refreshments 10am – 4pm for a fee of £260.00. There’s a maximum of 6 places. Please book early to guarantee a place.*
