Leonie Gibbs, The Chemistry of Colour, Landscape in Oil

Leonie Gibbs, The Chemistry of Colour, Landscape in Oil

16 - 17 APRIL

9.15am - 4.00pm

This course will build on the techniques introduced in Leonie’s course last autumn but is suitable for students of all levels with individual tuition. You will be encouraged to experiment further with colour, freeing inhibitions to express yourself in a considered but spontaneous manner.  Leonie will give a formal introduction to advanced colour theories looking at the work of various artists who have inspired her.  Students will be able to learn from observing Leonie paint and from her personal tuition.  They will be encouraged to paint outside making full use of the garden and landscape around the gallery.

In her recent paintings Leonie explains how she has been 'exploring the intensity of the pigments, putting crimson alizarin next to cadmium red. Then surrounding the brights with earth colour. It’s rather like mixing people at a party and seeing the chemical reaction!'

Price: £225. To include painting boards and lunch in the main house.  For more information and what to bring click here.
