What to expect:

Clear instruction with demos, along with practical exercises and learning through playful experimentation using acrylic paint. This is a fun 2 day workshop to help you inject colour into your landscapes.

You will learn:

  • Accurate colour mixing skills so you can always get the colour you want.
  • How different colour pigments behave, their intrinsic tonal values, and how to use them to maximum impact.
  • My simple colour system and how to use it to enhance your painting without getting bogged down in theory.
  • An understanding of warm and cool colours, how to identify them and how to use them liven up your paintings.
  • How to retain the clarity of colours and avoid making them muddy.

NB: Suitable for all abilities although SOME painting experience is advisable for this workshop. If you are unsure about this please contact us to arrange a chat!
