Autumn Colours -Painting a windswept tree on the Isle of Mull -

I taught this workshop in October 2020 last year and it was a really enjoyable painting day. If focused on autumn colours and combined watercolours with Acrylic inks to create texture in a painting of a windswept tree on the Isle of Mull.

The project is now available as an online tutorial.

Testimonials 

"I found the advice on use of colours particularly helpful, especially simplifying by working with only three, plus the detail on when to use a dry brush and a wet brush and the effects they create, ie. if the brush is too wet a 'cauliflower' will appear. It was lovely to have a large table with ample space to work and the opportunity to purchase high quality paper. Most of all, during the current Covid situation, it was good to spend time with other people rather than via video call." Helen Starling -October 2020

 

"A welcoming atmosphere with focus to deliver high end tuition across "Clear" communication interactions specific to each learner. Pre-preparation of information emails, additional supplies and materials offer a great value service of concentrated information delivery within a shorter face to face contact time. Amazing swift feedback with constructive guidances to aid further skill development after my work was submitted at a later time for review!" Flora Brumby -October 2020
