This workshop with popular tutor Jenny Aitken will cover composition, colour, brushwork and depth, with special emphasis on movement and atmosphere. Learn how to construct a painting in order to best tell the visual story, how to begin it and methodically work through to a successful conclusion.

Following an initial half hour colour demo by Jenny, using Daler Rowney acrylics, students will then paint a small tonal study in black and white. It’s a great warm-up to the day! This will focus on brushwork and the variation of tone to achieve a credible sense of water and atmosphere in a painting. The rest of the time will be spent on larger colour painting(s). Look carefully at the structure and reflective nature of waves, still water and foam, and how to achieve the illusion of moving water and light through paint. Depending on the flow/interest of the class, your tutor may do another demonstration later in the afternoon.

Throughout the session Jenny will give individual teaching and advice to each artist. There will be notes, and she will also bring plenty of relevant source photographs so students have a variety of choice.


All abilities very welcome.
