12 – 16 July
acrylicsAbout the course

Light, mood and atmosphere are key ingredients that can bring a landscape painting to life, while the versatile, forgiving quality of acrylics are perfect for exploring this theme in visual terms.

Paul Weaver will focus on the importance of shape, tone, edges and colour, along with expressive brushwork, also using a palette knife to create exciting atmospheric landscapes.

The holiday runs from 4pm Monday 12 July to 10am Friday 16 July with 3 day’s tuition and 4 nights’ accommodation.
