Description

This course is designed to include a variety of techniques for using this, the most versatile of painting mediums. On Saturday morning we will do a variety of exercises using acrylics like watercolours, brushed straight from the tube and used with a palette knife. There will be the opportunity to experiment with gels and mediums as well as also using collage. We will explore the possibilities of using gels and mediums designed to add texture or change the finish of the paint, and also look at glazing, palette knife technique, as well as how to stretch a canvas. Later on Saturday afternoon and during Sunday, you will be able to concentrate on a subject of your choice, or copy one of Carole’s examples displayed. After supper on Saturday evening Carole will give a demonstration supper and on Sunday you can start a new painting or continue with the work from Saturday. There will be both individual and group tuition throughout the course.
