  23rd March - Seascape in acrylic
Always a very popular workshop, painting lively and vibrant seas. Bring your own reference, or use mine. Working in acrylic we will build layers to create an exciting seascape.

6th April 2017  - Big brush acrylic landscape
Another popular one, working with large brushes and canvasses. This does not allow us to be too detailed. The marks are beautifully expressive and this is a great fun session.

15th June  2017 - Oil over acrylic landscape
If you are not confident with oils, or have never used them, this is the perfect workshop. We will start our landscape with acrylics and get it to good base layer. Then we will start working with oils to continue and finish the painting.

4th or 6th July(TBC) 2017 - Experimental watercolour
Taking your watercolour to the next level, we will play with mark making, water saturation, feathers, palette knives, texture mediums and anything else I can think of! We may end up with a finished painting, we may just have a great day and play with all the options.

27th July  2017- Mark making with acrylic, inks and oil pastels
Using a variety of options to apply media in a way that is exciting and different. Combing the different elements gives you a very unusual finish. We will work towards a finished piece, but that may be a landscape or an abstract.

22nd September 2017 - Deconstruction and reconstruction watercolour
My own special technique. We will take some of your existing watercolours and tear them up. I know, it’s scary but it is fun.
Then we use the pieces to make a fabulous picture.

12th October 2017 - Seascape in acrylic
Another popular one, working with large brushes and canvasses. This does not allow us to be too detailed. The marks are beautifully expressive and this is a great fun session.

 

2nd November  2017 - Realistic abstract landscape in mixed media
Using textures and colour and inclusions we will create a wonderful semi abstract landscape.

30th November 2017 - Big brush acrylic landscape
Another popular one, working with large brushes and canvasses. This does not allow us to be too detailed. The marks are beautifully expressive and this is a great fun session.
