About the Course
This two-day course, aimed at intermediate and more experienced artists, is designed to help you reach into your imagination to create comprehensively composed, balanced but expressive work.
Through the medium of oil, you’ll be guided through a process of deeper personal expression, delving further into your own imagination and inner feelings to create unique scenes or landscapes. For all artists this will be an exercise in learning the techniques of being true to yourself and not just the subject matter. The result will be a new way to tap into something more meaningful and with greater mood and feeling.

I attended Julie Ann’s Imaginative Landscape course and very much came away freed up to be more fluid, imaginative and evocative with oil paint. The exercises she encouraged us to do enabled us all to be more connected to ourselves before painting to uplifting and moving music. As well as teaching us how to capture mist on the hills, sun coming through the clouds and how to achieve contrast with lights and darks, she gave us useful techniques in how to use and clean brushes. We were also all lucky enough to get plenty of individual tutoring within the class where we were all pushed to tackle what was most difficult for us individually and over and over to let go of coming away from her course with a masterpiece but, more importantly, to come away with well established new techniques instead.
