What the course covers
It is intended to be fun and to experiment and to learn rather than to produce a perfect, considered picture. We will paint several small abstracts over the 2 days and any that remain unfinished you will be able to continue at home. If you are unhappy with your work, the great thing about oils and acrylics is that you can go over previous work and start again, using the same board, paper or canvas so that

Follow up Abstract Painting sessions only for people who have done my 2 day course. I have 7 one day sessions through 2017. Each one will stand alone or you can come to all. The idea is to support and encourage you on your creative journey. You will bring your own materials and work and I will be there to help and guide you, answer practical questions and discuss blocks and problems. We will look at the different techniques, styles and working practises of famous artists and discuss current exhibitions to visit.
Coffee and cake are included but bring your own lunch.
£65 per day or £52 per day if you book 5 or more. Max of 5.
Materials for you to bring
You need to bring a canvas to work on.
I do have brushes and paints here and if you use mine, I make an at cost charge for paint. It is ideal to have your own brushes (see below)
Please bring any materials that you have; acrylic paints plus anything else you wish to work with, e.g. pastels, wax crayons and inks. A range of brushes, apron, rags, mucky clothes.
If you do not have materials then I sugest that you buy brushes. For brushes I recommend Series A Hog - Filbert shape. Ideally in sizes 4,6,8 and 12 or just 6 and 8.
We work basically in acrylic paints. I suggest Golden as a make.
If you wish to paint a picture for a particular space then please bring photos and colour swatches.
