Come along and create a street scene in acrylic.

In his workshops Colin will show how to draw perspective and apply colour in an easy fresh and fast way, concentrating on the importance of light and tone. He will also include mixing and the use of colour to achieve a realistic interpretation of any image or scene you would like to paint.

See Colin’s work here

What to bring:

One canvas of any size pre painted in an orange or any bright colour. On to which a drawn image of the street scene of their choice, that will be done before coming to the workshop.

The workshop is to show the next stage of painting in the pre drawn image. The ref image can be from a photograph of the student’s choice, not a photocopy please but will be ok if no photograph is available.

The paints are Heavy Bodied Acrylics. If not can use the cheaper student quality but these are no were near as good. Any colours that the students like to use to follow the ref image.

Acrylic Paint brushes to be as large as possible, with some smaller ones for finer detail.

One ruler.

That is all the basic materials required for painting the street scene.

Pen and Wash Plus – Using Indian Ink with Water with Lynda White – 22nd September


This workshop will involve activities using disposable waterproof drawing pens; mark making, drawing then adding watercolour, painting and adding pen work. Also included will be using soluble ink (Indian ink with dip pens and other tools, or Rotring Art Pens which use soluble ink) as a significant part of the day. The “plus” part of the workshop title refers to the exciting, less conventional ways of using Indian ink with watercolour when it spreads and granulates, creating exciting effects!
