Thinking Aloud – experimenting with paint and colour

Tuesday 27th Feb and Tuesday 13th March, 10.00am – 4.00pm

£145/2 days

How can you take your painting forwards?

Do you get frustrated, and possibly a bit bored by your paintings?

How do you take a step sideways in order to move forwards? You know what you want to say, but not how you want to say it.  You may get tighter when you want to get looser, or looser when you want more control.


The more time you spend painting the more you know there are other things out there you can’t quite reach.

And what about abstraction? Different palettes? Different media? Supports? Intuition? And every other sort of variation on a theme.

This course will be short, but exciting. It will encourage you to make mistakes, and to enjoy them, to play and learn. I’m not too worried about what media you want to use –  the idea is to experiment, play, discuss and try new things.

Each day will have a different theme and build on the previous day. You will be encouraged to do some research in between classes.

These two days will be more about the process of using paint and colour,  than about the destination.
