21 - 22 JUNE
9.15am - 4.00pm
This is a fantastic adventure into the world of expressive landscape painting. Under Paul’s guidance, leave your inhibitions behind, free up your technique and embrace colour and mark marking to capture the feel of the landscape. You will explore the process of how to dilute a complicated subject into a contemporary and experimental painting responding intuitively to the landscape and trusting in the creative process. You will work in the open air embracing the verdant Sussex landscape in all its June glory. Students will leave with two good sized finished canvases using a variety of media including oils, acrylic and pva.
Paul is an acclaimed artist of many years experience who has exhibited throughout the UK and the Far East. We are very lucky to have persuaded him to run this course.www.paultreasurepaintings.co.uk.
