The Lure of the Land @ Hare Hill Barn
Thursday 5th and Friday 6th May 10 – 4pm
Hare Hill Barn, Cartmel Fell, Grange-over-Sands LA11 6NZ
You will not fail to be impressed by the setting of Hare Hill Barn. The open light filled space of the the barn, with its full length picture window overlooking the fells and Morecambe Bay, will really encourage light, bright, fluid responses.
Over the course of the two days you will be guided, using a fluid water-based mixed media sensory approach, to build up a series of studies exploring the potential of the landscape and your place within it. Working both outside, immersed in the landscape, and back in the studio, you will be encouraged to respond, reflect and develop your own language of marks, shape, tone and colour. As a result you can expect to be going home with a stack of studies, one or two final paintings and the seeds for a whole series alongside!
There will be demonstrations each day , which illustrate my personal mixed media techniques, as I encourage a playful and immersive response where the subject and materials come together to tempt you with their potential. Using inks and watercolours along with dry media you too will be able to build up a wonderful tension between fluidity and flow and the fixed line, between the observed and the intuitive response, between what is seen and what is felt.
Open to all levels and abilities
A full materials list will be supplied upon enrolment
I am also asking that everyone provides their own lunch and refreshments. Hot and cold drinks will be available though you may prefer to bring your own.
