Through expressive brushstrokes and strong colour, you will learn how to get the best out of the medium of acrylics. Practical demonstrations will provide helpful hints and tips, followed by one to one tuition throughout the day. This workshop is ideal for those who are looking to loosen up their painting style as well as those who are new to acrylics. Photographic reference will be provided on the day but feel free to bring your own personal photos.
Artist and tutor Marie Antoniou has been painting most of her life. Her love of animals and the natural world originally led her to study scientific illustration, but she is now well known for her unique depiction of wildlife which have earned her numerous awards and accolades. Marie is a great champion of acrylics which allows her to explore traditional subject matter with a more contemporary approach to painting, capturing nature with a more expressive style, giving her work an exciting, slightly abstract feel.
In 2013 she was winner of the ‘BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year’ competition in the British bird category, and has also exhibited with the Society of Wildlife Artists at the Mall Galleries London. She has been selected four times as a finalist at the prestigious ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year’ exhibition in London.
Marie’s work features in the Complete Guide to Painting in Acrylics and she co -authored the acrylic section of Artist’s Painting Techniques published by Dorling Kindersley. Marie is also a contributing author for The Artist magazine. She is represented by several galleries and her paintings are part of many private collections. As well as teaching, Marie also demonstrates for various art clubs around the UK.
