I will start the session in my lovely studio over a cup of tea or coffee whilst I demonstrate a technique which will start you painting and loosen you up! Then I'll show you particular techniques which will be more appropriate for the painting session outside and also information that will help to stop any feelings of being overwhelmed when outside painting or drawing. Then we will walk to my favourite quiet part of the seafront where you can relax and take in the amazing views across the Menai Straits or of the lovely town surrounded by sea. At this point, you will know how to start painting and I will be at hand to work one to one with you, helping you with any issues that arise and reminding you of what we learnt in the studio. We will be out for about an hour. Later on back at the studio, I'll show you how to make changes or add detail to your work. I supply all watercolour paints and equipment but it's a great idea to bring a camera to remind you later. You will come away having learnt lots of techniques such as wet in wet or dry brushwork. I work in watercolour.
I live in a beautiful part of the world! I run days and courses in my studio and outside 'en plein air' I have painted and taught for nearly 40 years and am a professional painter. You can see my work in galleries and individual homes and businesses, magazines and the internet. I know this part of North Wales intimately and regularly go out painting in my trusty van, Big Bella! I can show you the best spots to paint and how to make a painting or drawing that will make people go AHHH! I am very patient and understand what it is to be a total beginner or even a more experienced painter. I adapt my teaching to the individual and have vast experience of working in groups from University level to someone picking up a brush for the first time!
I will supply hot drinks and biscuits. Please bring a packed lunch. If we work in the studio because of the weatherthen you…
I will bring you a small sketchbook which you can take home with you as a memento of the session and in which you can record…
I converted my lovely studio 20 years ago. In the past its been a welding workshop and also a writers hidaway and a studio. Its a single floor building hiding in its own secret garden in the heart of Beaumaris and has all facilities and is warm and welcoming...and unique! I know Beaumaris and the surrounding areas well and can show you the best places to paint and draw which aren't busy and have the best views which are a ten minute walk away
最多可供6位年滿5歲的旅人參加。 This activity is aimed at all levels, whether you are a beginner or advanced. I adapt the sessions to your level.
This activity is designed so you will be able to make a painting of a landscape. It will give you practical skills and knowledge so that you will feel confident to paint outside in nature or inside later from a sketchbook.
