About the Course

During this exciting day Penny will share with you her methods for producing beautiful, small flower studies painted in oils; skills that she has honed over many years, including her period of ‘Daily Paintings’ where a piece is produced every day for a year.

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t painted in oils before, or if you are a regular painter, Penny will guide you at your own pace. The workshop will begin with a demonstration, following which you will tackle set-up and composition. As you begin your painting Penny will teach the fundamentals of under painting, tonal values, edges and colour.
