Beauties of Nature in Acrylic Paints & Mixed media



A fantastic weekend spent painting in acrylics and mixed media the beauties of the natural world... birds, butterflies, plants.
On the first day, Saturday, we spend time learning about and experimenting with acrylic paints, painting with mixed media, learning about composition, colour, pattern & texture.
We experiment with scale when drawing the beauties of nature.
We stop for a light lunch & a glass of wine which is included. The session ends with a cream tea of homemade scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam, and either tea/ coffee or a glass of prosecco.
On Sunday we put everything into practice and create a beautiful mixed media painting using the techniques learned and covered on Saturday.
A light lunch is included on Sunday too.
The workshop is in my beautiful garden studio in the heart of the pretty market town of Gainsborough which has the stunning Old Hall, the River Trent, and beautiful surrounding countryside.
The historic city of Lincoln is only 30 minutes drive away or a short train ride.
