This day course will be held in my studio – with no more than 2 students – ensuring both plenty of space to work and concentrated guidance from me. I supply all materials needed for this workshop.
Spend a day letting your creative urges flow creating a vibrant underpainting with completion of your painting in soft pastels . The emphasis of this day is on having fun to create a colourful, creative , unique piece of art - possibly with an abstract flavour. Whilst specific experience is not required some experience of using acrylic products such as acrylic fluids or inks would be useful.
During the day we will start by working from your chosen sketches , or photos. We will work on a vibrant underpainting thinking about texture and colour as well as doing thumbnail sketches to ensure a pleasing composition.
After lunch we will move onto using soft pastels, charcoal or other dry mediums to complete your work. We will be working in my studio with a maximum of 2 students - giving us space to work at easels if wanted.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
Starting at 10am, finishing at about 4pm with a break for lunch Tea/coffee and biscuits etc will be available all day. We will have a break for lunch so please bring your own food - there is a supermarket 5 minutes away if you want to stretch your legs and pick up a snack.
I have a wide variety of materials for you to try but would suggest you bring a variety of your favourite acrylics (any of acrylic paints, acrylic inks ,acrylic fluids or acrylic gouache) and a variety of soft, and harder pastels you have.
