Laura studied landscapes, weather and seasonal change with a strong emphasis on colour. Currently, she is painting with acrylics, but regularly produces work with oils, oil pastels and mixed media. Her love of the landscape and the ever-changing weather conditions are her starting point, developing her work through sketches that explore composition and colour. From here, she work to create vivid and stimulating final pieces. Much of her work shows the landscape around her, and often moves towards abstract representation.

Her studio is in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside and provides endless inspiration for her work.

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 10.

From the welcome to the end of the day a lovely atmosphere of fun and collabaration. Clear, helpful advice and instruction. As new medium to me I will be continuing my journey in oil.
The lunch was great too. I cannot think of any better way to spend a day. Sara you are an inspiration to paint.
Many thanks to all the team.

Sara guided us through all the stages of painting a picture. I had never used oils before. I surprised myself at what I was able to produce. Sara got the right balance between teaching us lots of useful tips and getting us started and encouraging our own creativity. It was a really inspiring and relaxing day in beautiful surroundings and the lunches, coffee and cake were great too.
