About the Course

Laura Donaldson is a practising artist living in Melbourne, Derbyshire. After growing up just outside Uttoxeter, where the local landscape of Staffordshire cemented her love of the landscape, she moved to study fine art at Edinburgh, graduating in 1998.

Her studies in landscapes, weather and seasonal change are reflected with a strong emphasis on colour. She works with many medium but this class will concentrate on creating stunning landscape compositions in acrylics.

All our workshops have been developed to provide a quiet day of creativity and gentle tuition and with this class you can really relax with acrylics and may be surprised at how much intensity you can get with the range of colour and soft nature of this material. This workshop will suit a range of different abilities with beginners being very welcome.

During the day you will complete 1 -2 acrylic pieces, exploring colour with this loose and speedy way of making work. With step-by-step guidance and tuition Laura will demonstrate each stage as you progress, and offer one-to-one guidance where appropriate. There will be a few useful hints and tips that will help you create your own masterpiece. The main subjects areas covered will be landscapes and woodlands.

Feel free to bring your own images or use those that are provided. We will work on one or two pieces throughout the day and learn how to build layers of colours to produce a striking final product.
