Would you like to learn the art of creating beautiful paintings? Then this class is for you!

It is an exciting one-day course set in the heart of the Peak National Park. You will develop your skills in using line, tone, and colour. The day will begin by understanding the fundamental principles of light and tone, experimenting with a range of mixed media materials. I will show you how to translate and transcribe the landscape by slowing down and observing the surrounding environment through mark-making exercises using Japanese ink and charcoal.

You will develop palette themes, and experiment with mixing and making your own pigment paint with the ancient painting method of egg tempera (free-range organic eggs from my own hens) as well as making glazes and layers in acrylic, oil and cold wax. You will discover the secrets of how to apply contrast, colour theory, and tonal values to create beautiful scenes.

This workshop will be hosted in the delightful hamlet of Hollinsclough in the Upper Dove Valley, and is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned artists. Everyone will leave relaxed, refreshed and infused with creativity. All materials will be provided as well as refreshments throughout the day – including lunch, tea, coffee, cake – you just need to bring an apron!

Landscape Painting Workshop – Sat Nov 9th –  10.00am – 4.00pm – £85
