About the Course

Landscape Painting Workshop - Big Skies

This exciting one-day workshop is set in the heart of the Peak National Park. My name is Pippa Pixley, I am a published author and artist. I will reveal how to master light within the landscape using gold.

We will start by understanding the fundamental principles of light and tone, experimenting with a range of mixed media materials. I will show you how to translate and transcribe the landscape by slowing down and observing the landscape through sketching exercises.

You will discover how to apply contrast, colour theory, and tonal values to create beautiful skies that burst with light, dramatic seascapes and moody landscapes.

You will have the opportunity to create landscape sketches and studies in Japanese ink and charcoal as well as landscape studies in acrylic, gold and silver, oil and cold wax.

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as anyone interested in creating beautiful landscapes. Everyone will leave relaxed, refreshed and infused with creativity.

This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned artists.

You just need to bring an apron.

Pippa is well organised and an experienced and enthusiastic teacher. She used lots of different media and explained how to use them really well. Helped by members of her family she produced tasty food and created a warm and friendly atmosphere.
I thoroughly recommend her course for beginners and experienced painters who want to try something different.

I booked this day workshop for my mother-in-law and 15 year old daughter. They both came out with the feeling of a fantastic day. Pippa made them feel very welcome, explained all tasks well, the supplied materials were all of great quality. All the food served was delicious and they are both looking into attending another course soon.

My daughter & I had a fabulous day with Pippa on her Landscape Painting Workshop. Pippa packed so much information into 1 day but managed to keep it relaxed and totally enjoyable. The day was suitable for beginners or experienced artists alike. We met some lovely people & had a delicious lunch too! A perfect day & great birthday treat for my daughter. Thank you Pippa!
