July 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£476
The Joy of Painting
Course runs from Dinner on Sunday 31 July 2022 to Lunch on Thursday to 4 August 2022
Tutor: Claire Devergier …Clare works primarily in oils and watercolour and occasionally with acrylics and mixed media. As a landscape painter, her inspiration is the landscape itself. Her work has been shown at a number of galleries in the South West and in Scotland. Visit Clare’s website for further information: www.clareduvergier.com.
The Course..Painting is for many a wonderful hobby or occupation. Watercolour in particular, is a very challenging medium and although this course includes other water based media it will be taught from a watercolour basis.
The course would suit everyone who has a basic knowledge of their medium, a desire to improve basic painting skills and perhaps change existing working practices that are proving unsatisfactory.
We all have our own painting demons and there will be time on this course to look at individual problems and work through them.
Watercolour and other water based mediums will be covered in this course which will look at all the crucial elements involved in producing good paintings right through from the planning stage to the finished work. Topics will include developing good colour mixing skills, simplification of material, understanding the importance of tone and creating good compositions.
Residential Fees from: £712. Non Residential: £476
