About the Course

Haidee-Jo Summers artist – English plein air and studio painter
My work is a celebration of sea, wind, sky, light and life revealed in rich and vibrant oil paint using my personal visual language of fresh and direct brushmarks.

Only by taking yourself and your equipment outside can you truly capture the ever changing light and colour of a natural scene. This day offers you the perfect opportunity to paint alongside one of the country’s leading plein air painters and share in the experience she has gained over her many years working outside.

As well as learning vital skills in composition, tonal values and colour use, you will gain invaluable experience in the practicalities of painting in the open air.

This two day workshop is most suitable for those with oil painting experience. The day will begin in the studio, but you will be working mostly outside and will only move back into the studio in the event of persistent or heavy rain – Haidee-Jo is not averse to working in the wind or cold!

Old Bank Studios offers a wide range of art, craft and textile courses and work-shops. Based in a glorious Edwardian banking hall, our fully equipped studios provide ideal spaces where students can work in a relaxed, ambient atmosphere. Located in the heart of Old Harwich, we are just a few yards from the Electric Palace Cinema.
