Acrylic Painting Workshops
These new sessions are for students with some experience in producing a painting. The acrylic painting workshops 'Seascapes in Sidmouth' will be a blend of representative and abstract painting. We will explore observation, imagination, atmosphere and personal response to create explorative and evocative paintings on a reasonably large scale (60cm x 60cm)
The course includes creating suitable surfaces, exercises in drawing, using pencil & charcoal, painting, use of brushes, rags and palette knives. We will explore the transition from representational naturalism to abstract painting. Weather permitting we will be working outside for some of the session. The course will also look at the development of formal elements and obscurity in picture making, using imagination, expression and atmosphere. The course is being run under the aegis of the Workers’ Education Association.
