Landscape Painting in Oils in the Yorkshire Dales

About the Course
Come and spend some time developing your painting skills in a relaxing, supportive environment. Workshops are open to all and being small groups only, are individually tailored to ability. All workshops are run by myself, I've taught art for over 25 years as well as creating my own work, and take place in my studio or in the surrounding beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
A day spent drawing and painting in the studio or outside in the landscape.
You will have the opportunity to use Wallace Seymour ancient drawing materials (stones and crushed earth pigment) to begin your drawing session and loosen you up to look for the different layers in the landscape, moving on to planning and developing an oil painting on board. Hopefully most of the day will be spent outdoors where you are more able to capture the atmosphere, but that is weather dependent!
You will be shown different application techniques and tools, building up layers of textures, coloured glazes and paints to create effects in your work.
Horton in Ribblesdale is on the Settle-Carlisle line so possible by public transport. The workshop is family friendly and my studio has wheelchair access, although easily accessible the toilet is up a gravel drive. Please state if mobility assistance will be needed.

I recently attended the "Landscape Painting With Oils " workshop with Penny Hunt, in Horton in Ribblesdale, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was so interesting and inspiring to talk to Penny about her work and the techniques she uses and then put some of these techniques into action. . Though the weather was not great, we had an active day preparing materials before we left the studio and then getting outdoors to loosen up with sketches of the landscape in charcoal, chalk and ancient stone. We returned to the studio, having soaked up the atmosphere of the outdoors and with our sketches in mind, to paint with oils. Later in the day we took paint, boards and necessary materials outside to paint "en plein air" only returning for a little more work in the studio once the rain started again.
I was excited by the workshop and can't wait to try out some of the ideas at home. I wanted to loosen up a little in my own painting and not be quite so bound by the actual. I wanted to explore a slightly more ethereal /abstract approach and I felt that Penny addressed what I wanted and gave me ideas. I would recommend this worksop and I am sure I will be returning for more in the future.
