21st JANUARY 2022 - 1, 2 & 3 Colour Landscapes in Watercolour - FULLY BOOKED

The perfect way of getting back into your painting after the Christmas break, working with

a limited palette is great practice for developing control of washes, tonal values and colour mixing,

as well as creating colour unity in the final work. Starting with tonal studies in 1 and 2 colours,

we will then explore a simple landscape subject using two variations of a 3 colour palette.

18th FEBRUARY 2022 - Sketching the Figure in Line & Wash

Adding figures to a scene can bring a sense of life, scale and movement to the subject.

Paul will guide you through his techniques for making quick studies and more resolved

drawings of the human figure, both from life and photographic reference, as well ideas for 

planning and adding figures to a simple landscape or street scene.


25th FEBRUARY 2022 - Coastal Landscapes in Acrylics - FULLY BOOKED

The coastline always provides an inspiring source of subject matter, from skies, rocks,

cliffs and breaking surf, to boats, wet sand and reflections. Acrylics are both versatile and

forgiving, perfect for capturing these rugged subjects. Paul will cover a range of techniques

with brushwork and the palette knife, helping you create lively, expressive paintings.


20th MAY 2022 - Expressive Flowers in Watercolour

Flowers make excellent subjects to practice painting from observation, including the

key ingredients of shape, edge, tone and colour. With advice on sketching, composition 

and watercolour techniques, Paul will demonstrate and encourage a loose, free, 

expressive approach.
