Still Life Painting Courses: 26th and 27th October

Still Life Painting Courses: 26th and 27th October


A two day painting course for experienced artists & adventurous beginners!

2019 DATES:

Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th October 2019

TIME:  10.00am to 4.00pm
WHERE:  Hutton's Ambo Village Hall, North Yorkshire

What To Expect
You will be encouraged to move into abstraction; to develop fresh ways of interpreting what you see. This is an intuitive, organic approach to painting which has its roots in observation and carefully considered choices.

These courses will explore colour and composition; scratching out, layering, water washes and dripping; how to use a palette and how to work with acrylic mediums to increase the depth and patina of your work.

What you will take away with you
Two canvases full of inspiration, fresh approaches, knowledge, ideas and refreshed perspective and new skills.

Who Is This Workshop For

My workshops are aimed at adventurous beginners as well as experienced artists. Whatever your level of experience, you will be pushed to experiment and explore a different way of working.

Just bring an open mind and a sense of play - every workshop is different and I try to tailor classes to suit individual needs. If you feel you have special requirements, get in touch.

I find Lesley’s work inspirational and it was great to watch her in action, how she actually approached her work and executed it. Lesley gave really helpful feedback throughout the day that I’m going to put into action and take forward into my future work. It was a great day with really friendly people that I’d love to repeat.

Cancellation & Refund Policy

I limit the size of my workshops so I can offer plenty of one to one time with every one who comes - it’s cosier and friendlier that way too. So if you need to cancel coming to a workshop, please let me know as soon as possible, so I can reallocate your space to someone else. Regrettably because of the small size of the workshops, if you cancel within two weeks of the start of a workshop I cannot offer a refund.
