No more muddy, dreary, just “blah” paintings!
This workshop will teach you how to create paintings that are vibrant and have impact.
This workshop is not for the absolute beginner. It is best if you have some drawing and painting skills, as we will be jumping straight in with drawing your subject before we start painting.
There will be some colour theory exercises to go through before we actually start painting our subject, but don’t worry! It will be fairly short and hopefully fun!
You will be creating a colour palette for your subject, then we will get down to actually painting your subject.
Techniques we will cover include laying in washes, mingling colours, establishing lights and darks, then for the truly obsessive amongst you, refining details.
All materials will be provided, just bring yourself! Of course, if you have a favourite set of brushes, or paints, you can use those too.
Class size will deliberately be kept small, to allow lots of individual attention, so do book your attendance early.Max 8 persons Book at firstname.lastname@example.org
