Learn how to paint a wonderful expressive mixed media painting expressing low-tide beach textures in stunning coastal light with watercolour, gouache and soft and hard pastels, in a multi-layered painting.
Utilising the natural texture of Canson Moulin du Roy 'not' 300gsm (140lb) watercolour paper, learn how to combine lots of different media together using spontaneous marks, to create a really exciting atmospheric end result.
Using big brushes and expressive mark-making techniques, this great workshop will help you quickly gain confidence and control with clean colour mixing by both drawing and painting at the same time with brush, paint and pastel.
We will be using gravity to paint with as well in this workshop - working vertically, tipping the board, angling it and so on, so this workshop is not for the timid or faint-hearted! The emphasis is on the experimental, working with the marks you create, having flexibility with yourself to work with your painting to take a different direction than first anticipated or planned, and thus making the painting more exciting as a result!
With regular demonstrations, one-to-one and group tuition throughout your workshop you will learn lots to help you really develop as an artist working with like minded-friendly people throughout the day.
Suitable for improvers and artists with some previous painting experience who want to loosen up their style and be more free and very expressive!
