Sunday Workshop – Painting Wild Africa – 21st May 2017
I love to paint the wild beauty of Africa and it’s stunning wildlife and it has been a favourite subject of mine for over 30 years. I this one day Sunday workshop I will share with you my knowledge of how to really capture the grace and elegance of truly wild animals. I will show you how light effects colour use, tonality and atmosphere and how these all come together to really bring a painting to life, as well as sharing the ideas and thoughts that I use when painting this magical continent.
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 employ when designing a new image and some aspects of tone and composition. Please feel free to ask any questions! You will then begin painting yourself and I’ll be on hand with tips and ideas to help you create a beautiful painting of a wild animal.
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.
