About the Course

This workshop aims to give participants a thorough grounding in the essentials of creating beautiful atmospheric landscape paintings in acrylics. You will complete a piece from start to finish, learning about the creative potential of interactive Acrylics along the way

Fraser will lead with a demonstration showing how he works and some of the topics that he will be covering. This will include painting clouds and skies and looking at ways of creating realistic and atmospheric effects. This will be followed by a brief look at composition and how to arrange and construct a landscape painting, before you begin a painting using these ideas and techniques.

Fraser is quite happy if you would prefer to work entirely on your own source material. He will be around to offer advice and one to one assistance throughout the day, finishing up with an informal critique at the end of the course.
