Expressive painting in acrylics for beginners-intermediate.



This is a one-day workshop designed for those with some or little experience working in acrylic paint. We will cover materials, design/composition, and colour. You can paint abstractly or representationally whichever you prefer. Lynn will help you understand the practice of painting a well-constructed and exciting piece. The price includes 2 boards for you to paint on. You will be working in Lynn's studio in an old Silk Mill in the ancient market town of Frome, in Somerset. There are only two places on the course so there will be lots of one-to-one tuition. A comprehensive materials list is also provided upon booking. Lynn has collectors in the UK, USA, Canada, and Europe. She has exhibited widely including in 2021 at The Mall Galleries in London for the ING Discerning Eye exhibition and The Society of Women Artists. 'I did a one-day acrylics workshop with Lynn and really enjoyed it. She encouraged me to go way beyond anything I'd done before and be much more creative with colour and texture. There was a good balance of painting time intertwined with theory on design and colour mixing. A very positive day, which has fired my enthusiasm.' Peter Cadman (5* Google review) 2022 'I had such a wonderful day in Lynn’s studio, learning the theory of a good composition, experimenting with sketching and colour mixing, and most of all, learning not to be afraid to make mistakes and just to experiment and feel my way across the board/canvas. Lynn is friendly, open, inspiring, I really recommend her workshop' Nicola Hartley (5* Google review) 2022 Participants must be 18 or over.

Lynn paints contemporary landscapes and abstract flowers. Her gestural, expressive style captures the essence of a place, a mood, a time. Painting with the seasons, capturing the colour and movement with bold and energetic mark-making. She doesn't work from photographs rather spending time in a place, absorbing the energy the colours and memorising elements that capture its essence. Her paintings are often layered and highly textured.
