These sessions will be based on creating a number of landscape themed compositions. A hands-on course for beginners to intermediate painters. You will build confidence to explore the outdoor environment around you, inspire by various light conditions, develop resilience to changing weather and gain an insight to challenges of an outdoor practitioner. You will explore how colours affect the temperature of a painting, how to paint a range of green colours with an impact and how to use colour for maximum benefit when creating exciting compositions. Each session will start from a demonstration and discussion of the focus for the day, followed by practical work.

  • You will produce short and long studies;

  • Focus will be on exploration of various painting approaches, such as, sketching with a brush, wet on wet, layering, grisaille, pointillism and watercolour and ink. 

  • You will be encouraged to observe and produce a personal response;

  • You will be mainly painting outdoors (weather permitting) outside the studio also in York city centre and other close to Copmanthorpe locations!

Please dress in comfortable for the day clothes and shoes. You may wish to bring a foldable chair or a light easel to be extra comfortable.
