PAINT SUMMER SKIES - in person workshop, Craigie

Surrounded by huge Ayrshire skies, we'll paint a beautifully evocative summer sky in oils with all the colours of the rainbow!

Venue: Craigie Village Hall

Using oil paint - fret not, oils are THE most friendly medium - we'll allow these soft, glowing skies to emerge from our canvas.

Working on a coloured surface, bringing the blues & lilacs to life, then injecting some zesty oranges and pinks - you can choose how you finish your painting - a gentle seascape, lush green fields, a highland mountain range or perhaps slip a wee Ailsa Craig or Arran in the distance. The choice is yours.

Full step by step guidance given, where needed - this is a lovely workshop for beginners (you'll create a very simple seascape foreground)

You'll leave with a finished oil painting - ready to hang or frame - and sure to impress everyone who sees it!

Includes: Bucks fizz, tea/coffee, refreshments, ALL materials - bring your own lunch
