Workshop - Painting: Enhance your painting through colour and tone

Ever wondered why your paintings look flat and lifeless? This workshop will show you how to make your paintings come alive through the use of colour and tone. Learn how to use both colour and tone to create distance and depth in your painting and help with composition. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to employ warm and cool colours to create distance in a painting and create tonal contrast and tonal ‘patterns’ to create distance and enhance composition. NB There is a chance to paint outside (at the village hall) weather permitting.


Workshop - Mixed Media: Combine paint with ink and oil pastels

Add drama and texture to your landscape/seascape paintings by combining paint with various media including ink, oil pastel and/or wax crayon. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to apply ink to a painting to enhance tonal contrast and create texture with ink and oil pastels and/or wax crayons.
