Autumn painting at HAMPSHIRE ART studio starts on Thursday 19th September. The term is divided into different building blocks for painting. This week the focus is tone, tempera, light and depth.

Learn how the use of tempera (NOT egg tempera) can transform a picture. You will be working from a still life and copying an old master. A busy day.

Chris Davis, an artist from Abbotts Ann, will work alongside Kate Measham demonstrating these techniques.

Autumn Art Classes – enjoying the process


All the best ideas come through practise, hard work and enjoying the process.

A regular visual workout improves your dexterity, your understanding and your thought processes. Sometimes it is hard. You have to take risks, and it might not always be a masterpiece, but to get better you have to take a step into the unknown. Then, next time it won’t be so unnerving.

Come to regular classes, work through different ideas in a supportive atmosphere and start enjoying the process.

This autumn join a regular Thursday art course with a mix of drawing, painting and life drawing. There is a price incentive to sign up for batched days at a time. Equally you may want to only do Life drawing, or painting, or drawing. Maybe this sounds complicated – hopefully you can understand the variations.

If you want to sign up or discuss options contact me Kate Measham

This course is open to anyone who would like to learn about, or to improve their colour mixing skills. 

Using oil paints, you will look at how colours are created, and what effect they have on each other in a painting. Every artist should make their own colour wheel and you will start by making wheels and looking at how colours are mixed. Then, working from a simple still-life set up, you will mix a large variety of colours and look at the difference between them and how they interact. 

Experience is not necessary, just a large palette to give plenty of space in which to mix paint. 

You will need to bring the following: 

Oil Paints:  Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Raw Sienna, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Viridian, Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine, Raw Umber 

A flexible palette knife, 
A large palette, 
2 oil painting brushes of different sizes (eg. 2 and 4), 2 jam jars, 
Low odour solvent eg Sansodor,


Lots of rags (very important!) 

2 small boards or canvases e.g.. 25x30cm or thereabouts, 

Still-life materials will be provided.

Spring has sprung, 
the grass is ris...

… mowing has started, and other gardening tasks are planned. I love this time of year. I know lots of you like to be busy outside too. However, there are the occasional meteorological knock back. Thursday 4th April is the first drawing day of the spring classes and rain is forecast (https://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2633858).

So, ignore the garden and hide out with us in Bransbury.


Slight lie…it won’t be scones, but expect good coffee and possibly some biscuits
