If you have always wanted to create loose and expressive landscape paintings but you don’t know where to start then come along and learn how to paint in an expressive and painterly style.
You will be working with Graham Lowe a working artist who has over 20 years’ experience in teaching art in adult education. The workshop is open to anyone from total beginner to the more experienced painter. You will be shown how to use a range of expressive painting techniques following step by step painting demonstration.
You will then have the opportunity to create your own unique expressive landscape. Graham will guide the group through each stage and there will be lots of one to one help.
We will work with acrylic paints to capture the changing light and mood in landscape.
Please bring along:
- A selection of acrylic paints: System 3 are a good student quality. I recommend the following colours: Titanium white, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow, burnt sienna, crimson and burnt umber.
- A range of brushes for acrylic paints: 1inch flat, 1/2inch flat and a small round for fine detail. Pro-arte or System 3 are good quality brushes and relatively inexpensive.
- An A4 book of watercolour or cartridge paper or 6 lose sheets
- A palette, water container, masking tape, kitchen roll and newspaper to cover the tables.
The price of the workshop is £22. This includes tea or coffee.
