£40 - all materials supplied - CLICK TO BOOK

During this full day workshop you'll paint a snowscape on black gesso to experience the difference in using colour and creating drama on a dark background. The painting will start in acrylic paint and finish in oils - this method allows you to fully enjoy the richness of colour with oil paint while the acrylic underpainting means we can complete a painting in a short space of time with no watching & waiting (quite literally) for paint to dry! 
INCLUDES:

Sunday 6th August - 10.30am-4pm - HAC, Irvine £50
A particular favourite of mine! We'll create a glorious painting in buttery oils, bursting with colour.
