Develop Your Painting
  • Coal Orchard
    Somerset TA1 1JL
The aim of this course is to help students loosen up and find their own style, progressing from simply copying to interpreting the subject. We will work from reference material provided; sometimes from photographs, sometimes still life, frequently referring to the work of great painters from the 20th century and before. Each week we take a different approach or theme, which, when combined together, will provide a firm base for individualisation and experimentation.

Elements studied will include working with acrylics – from washes to impasto; colour-mixing; mark-making; working with the pallet knife, how to create atmosphere and expression in your painting; as well as a continual assessment of tone, form, contrast and composition.
