About this workshop

Begin your journey with acrylics with an introduction to a simple studio layout – an easy way to approach your paintings from setting up your palette to the basic principles of painting a landscape. There will be demonstrations, painting, and personalised guidance.

We move on to colours, perspective and lots of painting designed to free you from yourself and allow the creative juices to really flow! Then more demonstrations, painting, and personalised guidance. Also focusing on specific subjects, i.e. trees, skies, buildings and more painting with personalised guidance.

At the end of the workshop, you will have the knowledge of a procedural pathway which you may use to help you approach the blank canvas.
