Learn how to combine mixed media techniques using Golden fluid acrylic paints and mediums, drawing using Unison soft pastels & Pan Pastel combined with other pastels and dry media to create land and seascapes.

This course allows you to explore a wide range of techniques to bring your painting project ideas to fruition under professional artistic guidance and feedback.

This class will guide you through:

  1. Preparing your own supports and adding texture using Golden Acrylic mediums (on both paper and board)
  2. Developing compositional sketches and underpaintings using charcoal and Golden Fluid Acrylics
  3. Colour Theory – working with a limited palette and exploring colour combinations
  4. Drawing & Painting processes – building layers and adding details, fixing etc
  5. Finishing and presentation of work.

The goal over the six weeks will be to try complete 3-4 final works up to 40 x 40 cm (depending on weekly progress).

Styles will vary between realistic, expressionist to semi-abstraction.

All materials and equipment are provided (no need to buy) along with the usual free cup of tea/coffee and free parking.

Please bring some reference photos or sketches to work from. I will have one or two which will be used for demonstrations that can also be used if needed.
