About the Course

Two day art break in the stunning coastal scenery of Devon. Based at Slapton Ley Field Centre.

We will visit various sites to sketch in the medium of your choice (demos where appropriate) and aim to record the atmosphere, mood and landscape features that are important to us. We will return to the indoor classroom and experiment with different ways of using this information, simplifying it so that we may create acrylic paintings with an abstract feel. We will try various mark making methods and experiment with knife painting, large brushes and other implements.

Susan Gray was formally trained in Fine Art at Buckinghamshire Chiltern University College. She has a studio in Wendover Bucks where she exhibits her work and teaches. She exhibits in galleries in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire and regularly demonstrates at art societies.
