About the Course

The day will begin with John doing a short demonstration landscape, showing the way he applies oil paint, brush control and colour mixing. He will discuss painting a sky, distance and foreground (aerial perspective) and trees. Depending on your level of experience and drawing ability, you can make your own painting as complicated or simple as you like. There will be plenty of photos to choose from to give you inspiration and ideas. John will work with each person individually to help you to complete your painting.

About the Artist
John has taught oil painting for over 30 years at Residential summer schools and privately. He regularly exhibits at The Mall Galleries, London. John has won many awards for his paintings including SAA Artist of The Year.
John is a member of The Wapping Group of Artists.
