About the Course
Have you ever wanted to paint a landscape like one of the Impressionists?
This very popular 2 day course is designed to give you both an insight and opportunity to work in the same style and manner as some of the great Impressionist painters, producing landscape paintings enriched with colour, texture and light. Taking inspiration from Monet, Sisley, Pissarro and others, you will use some of the most idyllic scenes around Claydon Gardens as our inspiration to produce beautiful Impressionistic landscape paintings in the comfort of the studio. Time will be taken to learn specific brush techniques, oil paint application and the importance of colour theory to create a painting with real harmony and vibrancy. During this course you can expect to create 2 Impressionist paintings; one of a classic Monet-inspired waterlily scene and the other a beautiful garden or landscape scene.
What to bring:
Please bring a good selection of hog oil painting brushes with you, in a range of sizes. The Impressionists typically used flat or filbert brushes so using these would be an advantage.
There will be a materials fee of £5 payable in cash to the artist at the start of the course, which goes towards all other tools and materials which will be provided, including all paper and paint.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Tea, coffee and biscuits are included and available throughout the day. Lunch is not provided although The Phoenix Tea Rooms, just next door, provide an array of meals, light lunches and snacks. Alternatively, there is a fridge and microwave in the studio kitchen for you to use if you prefer to bring your own lunch.
“The course exceeded expectation and would highly recommend it. I was a little apprehensive as my experience was very limited. I shouldn’t have been concerned! Peter very quickly put every body at ease and not feeling intimidated at all. I learned so much and will definitely be booking again.”
