DYNAMIC COMPOSITION

& FREEING THE MARK:

This little course is the second one in a series of more technical, hands-on workshops. The previous one, "Design Thinking in Painting" covered aspects of form and design and it's available to purchase as a pre-recorded course too.

 

Dynamic Composition will focus on strategies to free you up in painting  (the way you paint rather than concepts).

Each session is a workshop, meaning that we will be and making art things during the online contact time.

This is not a painting course to spend time working on a painting, but more a series of shorter exercises, which are fun and easy but will have a profound impact on your painting work.

If you feel your painting needs freeing in any way, take this little course.

This course is the perfect preparation for the next course, "Greens & Rhythm". If you are able to join both, do. together these courses will give you quite a strong base for future painting work.

Sessions for Dynamic Composition are: (all at 3 pm UK time)

 Monday, June 14,

 Tuesday, June 15 &

 Thursday, June 17.

Sessions will last 60-90 minutes depending on the size of the group.

Cost: £120

All courses can be paid in instalments and there are significant (and increasing) discounts when booking two or three courses together.

A materials list will be provided with your booking but generally, most water-based painting and drawing materials would work.

This course is suitable for all levels of experience and especially suited to those in the early stages of their painting/art journey.

Greens & Rhythm in nature:

Green can be the hardest colour to tackle and there is so much of it in nature!

This course will explore different aspects of green, starting from nature observation, but also finding inspiration in the colour itself, (ie; mixing it successfully!); looking at artists who work with greens in interesting ways; and different aspects relating to how to create paintings that are dynamic, interesting and full of life.

 

 

This will help with landscape paintings, either realistic or abstract or with any other theme inspired by nature.

We will cover the basics of outdoor work, including outdoor sketching & setting up a "studio" in -situ.

All this will be covered at more depth in the Landscape painting Course in September (see below), for which this is a great introduction..

The sessions in this course will be a mix of doing, discussing relevant artists' work, learning technical aspects, personal feedback as well as the individual feedback included with all courses, as and when you need it, in between sessions.

Dates are:

Monday, June 21

Tuesday, June 22

Thursday, June 24

Monday, June 28

Monday, June 5.

All classes at 3 pm for 90-120 minutes, depending on group size.

Cost: £200

All courses can be paid in instalments and there are significant (and increasing) discounts when booking two or three courses together.

We will start with 3 days working in The South Downs near Brighton, where my studio is based.

OR

Those working remotely will have short online sessions with me the same days so you can follow the process from wherever you are.

The last 3 days will be online for everyone.

This workshop will cover all aspects of landscape painting, but with a more abstract or semi-abstarct approach (instead of realistic).

It will inspire you, free you, connect you to your surroundings...

If taken with all the Summer courses, you will have a very complete experience to help you tackle outdoor work in nature, which will help you with any kind of painting work you do.

Dates are:

September 10, 11 & 12 for the in person part (or online if you choose) and  September 14, 16 & 18 for the studio work, online for everyone.

It would be wonderful to work with you in person again, but equally lovely to do so online..

Book your place here.
