Andrew will begin with a brief introduction to his outdoor painting equipment, setup and materials. He will then introduce the oil colours used during the day and explain how and why it’s important to lay them out on the mixing palette for easy and quick access during outdoor work. You will then go into the landscape near the studio with a sketchbook to get some ideas and look at possible locations for paintings. Andrew will demonstrate and show examples of how to record the landscape quickly and how to ‘see’ a view that has good composition, and may make a good subject for painting. After lunch Andrew will set-up and paint a quick demo in alla prima oil painting techniques which are used in plein air landscape painting. Students will then begin painting the view they have chosen using the white canvas / board. Throughout the day Andrew will circulate around the group giving one to one advice and helping with any issues that may arise.

Day 2 will begin with a quick recap, before going outdoors to another viewpoint where you will paint onto the canvas / board with the coloured ground using the techniques learnt during the previous day. After lunch you have the option to begin another 2 hour painting outdoors or continue with one of the first two at the previous location. At the end of the workshop there will be a mini exhibition of work in the studio. This will be very useful to see how the coloured ground has affected the painting.

Easels and chairs will be available to all students on location.

Andrew trained and worked in illustration before taking up oils over 20 years ago. Now Helston based, he mainly works en plein air or from his studio at Krowji Redruth, painting the landscapes of Cornwall – particularly Porthleven, Mullion and the Lizard Peninsula. Painting in oils, Andrew strives to capture the changing light and rugged Cornish landscapes and seascapes in a figurative and impressionistic style of painting. Andrew sells his work in seven galleries throughout the UK.

PLEASE NOTE:

Some experience of oil painting would be beneficial but not necessary.

If the weather is bad we will use the studio to paint from photographs in an alla prima style that can be used en plein air.

A small amount of walking is required to get to our painting location with our equipment. We will never be too far from the studio if needed.

Easels and chairs will be available to all students on location.
