Four day art workshop on Valencia Island
I am now taking bookings for the four day workshop on Valencia Island in Co. Kerry. The course runs over the bank holiday weekend in May and you can find more details here.
The workshop will cover the following areas and there will be time for you to do hands on painting exercises and to complete a painting.
- Preparing the canvas
- Finding good compositions
- Mixing paints & making neutrals
- Colour theory
- Tonal values
- Brush work technique
- Evaluating our work
- The three basic elements of being an artist
- How to find inspiration
- How encourage creativity
- Common blocks to creativity & what to do about them
- How to progress as an artist
I will give various demonstrations throughout the weekend.
The workshops will be illustrated with videos and images of my work and that of others that have inspired me. I will paint at least one demonstration painting and there will be lots of room for questions, discussion and hopefully a bit of fun.
