With his irrepressible energy and imagination, Glyn will demonstrate how to capture the ever-changing English coast with bold colour, expressive mark-making and texture. The workshop will begin with an introduction to Glyn’s unique style of painting, followed by a demonstration of techniques which you will then put into practice. Students will be encouraged to produce their own work using the techniques discussed which include the basics of composition, tone, colour and movement, as well as how to add mixed media elements such as layering collage to create texture and energy.

Glyn will always be on hand to assist and advise where necessary making sure everyone, from complete beginners to experienced painters are able to get fully engaged. The second day will allow for more demonstrations and further time to experiment, and you will look to complete an artwork that has used acrylic paints in unusual, creative, and surprising ways. Most importantly, you will have gained the confidence to capture the essence of place which will allow you to continue creating at home! Glyn is a great communicator and very personable in character; his workshops are always hugely popular.

“As you know, my work is all about experimenting and having fun and that is exactly what the workshops are all about. If you already know your stuff, the workshops will freshen you up and if you are starting out, you’ll be creating your first masterpiece in no time!”

Glyn is a celebrated artist and tutor who has previously featured on the ITV series ‘Cornwall with Caroline Quentin’. Glyn is also the author of the highly acclaimed acrylic painting books ‘Acrylics Unleashed’ & ‘World of Acrylics’ which are available to purchase in the shop. This year Glyn embarks on his latest adventure ‘Fragile Coast’ (The English Coast Project 2020) where he aims to raise awareness and funds for coastal conservation projects, particularly the Plastic-Free initiatives, whilst painting his way around the English coastline. Once completed, 180 paintings will be exhibited around coastal locations and reproduced in a series of books.
