Painting, Painting, Painting
We need the rain – the grass by the studio is still bald in places…but the wonderful September evenings have been a joy.
As autumn sets in (slightly) thoughts turn to other things. It is a time for trying something new, or returning to old pleasures. If you haven’t painted for ages, you are a bit uncertain, or you just want a fresh take on what to do next come and join this bi-weekly class.

£60 for whole day (£275 for 5)
Ramshill, Easton Common Hill, East Winterslow
10am – 4.00 pm
This will be a relaxed day with a different theme to each class including mark making, cloth, glass, reflective surfaces, shape and tone – normal stuff. You can work in any media.
The guiding ethos will be about making your work exciting, and interesting.
It hope this will become a regular fixture on alternate Thursdays. They will be full day sessions. There is a limited amount of space so there will be a max of 6 per class.
This is a Saturday course designed for those of you who have never painted with oils, or are very rusty.
I will provide the materials – you can start to accumulate your own once you know what you like to use. Picture below is sweet shop made real…you will need considerably less to get started. To start with this set would be like learning to drive in an Aston Martin.
You will start with looking at tone and becoming used to working with oils. It will be in a fun and supportive atmosphere, though possibly a bit messy.

Christmas is the time of year for nut crackers…but why not put them to use all year around? They are perfect for getting a grip on those hard-to-remove paint tops.
This was a excellent tip came from a student on the Thinking Aloud course earlier this year.
I love this cartoon sent to me by a student after the last class of the year. I think I am embracing the look rather too wholeheartedly.
Clearly, art classes not earrings on all lists for Father Christmas…
