This acrylic painting workshop will focus on using and developing the use of a harmonious palette of colours, tones and textures to capture the fragility and ephemeral nature of flowers in landscape.
This workshop will also include a collaborative activity as part of the session.
Expressive Painting & Drawing Series
Rooted in 20th Century and 21st Century landscape and organic still-life genres, each workshop will explore one of the core principles of composition, colour, tone, shape, form, texture and line, providing participants with the foundations to achieve the level of abstraction / representation they are looking for in their artwork.
Focussing on increasing confidence and technical skills in acrylic painting and drawing, as well as pushing the boundaries of figuration / abstraction, these workshops draw on Sara’s own knowledge and painting processes, as well as taking inspiration from the work of other pioneering artists.
Each day will include a series of drawings and paint experiments, along with every participant creating their own acrylic painting on canvas (approx. 30 x 40cms).
