If you have done the Beginners Oil Painting class the question is what to do next. On this course you will start to look at colour.
Colour is a huge topic. You will start by looking at three different approaches: at painting with a limited palette, alla prima and a variation of ‘on the shoulders of giants’.
Sometimes limitations are liberating, sometimes total freedom is exciting, and sometimes exploring the work of other artists shows you a new path. You will see that you are the master of your painting and you can paint any way you want…with a bit of practise.
I will suggest a list of equipment. There will be essentials, and others, less essential you might feel inclined to add to you supplies.
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.
Sewing and knitting have ‘stitch and bitch’… this is the drawing version, without the niceness.
It has become a regular fixture on alternate Thursdays. Pick morning or afternoon sessions. There is a limited amount of space so there will be a max of 7 per class.
Drawing is a skill; it requires practise, guidance and encouragement, adventure and more practise. In this class you will be taught about materials, different techniques and, very importantly, you will learn how to look.

This is a class that is appropriate for all abilities.
You may not have picked up a pencil for a long time, or you might attend a regular, weekly class. The idea of this class, and others that will follow, is to extend yourself, try something new, revisit something old and to remind yourself that drawing is exciting.
