Sunday Painting Workshop – Thames Barge – 2nd September 2018
Thames barges are an instantly recognisable and iconic boat which used to regularly ply their trade between London and the southern coastal counties, bringing in raw materials to keep London supplied.
In this one day Sunday workshop, for oil and acrylic painters, we will recreate one of these elegant yet versatile vessels within its marine context.
The day will start at 10.00am so please arrive around 9.50am. The morning session will start with a practical one hour demonstration in which I show you some techniques that I use and how light effects colour use and tonality. Please feel free to ask any questions! You will then begin painting yourself and I’ll be on hand to help you create a beautiful painting.
A hot fish and chip lunch (unless you request otherwise) will be provided at 1pm and, after lunch, we will continue with our painting. The day will finish around 4.30pm. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
The workshop will be held at my light and airy studio located at Paul Apps Fine Art, 7-9 Marine Walk Street, Hythe, Kent CT21 5NW.
Local paid parking is available, free parking is possible in nearby streets about a five minute walk away from the gallery.
The day is designed for oil or acrylic painters and canvas paper, boards and table easels are provided for use. Please bring your own painting equipment (e.g. brushes) and paints.
Oil painters, please use Zest-it and not spirits to clean your brushes as this avoids the smell of white spirits/turps which some find unpleasant!
The day costs £90.00 and, owing to space, numbers are very limited. Book early to avoid disappointment.
