Spend a day letting your creative urges flow creating a vibrant underpainting with completion of your painting in soft pastels. The emphasis of this day is on having fun to create a colourful, creative, unique piece of art. Whilst specific experience is not required some experience of using acrylic products such as acrylic fluids or inks would be useful.

During the day we will start by working from your chosen sketches , photos or a still life set up with flowers in this studio. We will work on a vibrant underpainting thinking about texture and colour as well as doing thumbnail sketches to ensure a pleasing composition.

After lunch, we will move onto using soft pastels, charcoal or other dry mediums to complete your work. We will be working in my studio with a maximum of 2 students - giving us space to work at easels if wanted.

What's included in the price?
Tea/coffee and biscuits etc will be available all day. We will have a break for lunch so please bring your own food - there is a supermarket 5 minutes away if you want to stretch your legs and pick up a snack.

I have some materials for you to try but would ask you to bring a variety of the acrylics (any of acrylic paints, acrylic inks, acrylic fluids or acrylic gouache) and a variety of soft, and harder pastels you have.

You will be able to buy Colourfix pastel paper, at cost, from me or bring your own (clear or white ideally).
