Layering the Land; the versatility of acrylics

This 2 day course will give you the opportunity to really get to grips with the versatility of acrylic paint and the various mediums on offer. From thin transparent glazes to thick impasto textural passages of colour the opportunities abound with this amazing medium. DAY 1 will see us creating a series of ‘samples’ as we apply various colourways, textures and patterns onto a selection of papers and supports. These will then be further developed into abstracted collaged ‘landscapes’ full of promise and inspiration. On DAY 2 you will have the opportunity to develop your selected collaged studies into expressive textured and colour filled paintings.

All the materials will be supplied so all you need to do is come along and allow yourselves to experiment.

  1. Hello Janette

    I am interested in this course (March 26/27th). So is my friend Jennifer Doughty who plans to phone you tomorrow.

    I have been to a few of your workshops several years ago. It was mainly using Brusho inks I recall which I still enjoy. I have been experimenting in many different media not always very successfully but keen to learn and try something different.

    I think I am already on your newsletter list. But not certain.
    Best wishes

  2. Hello Janette

    Looking forward to working with you again on the course in March (just booked it). And belated Happy New Year Greetings to you too!
    You have been a source of encouragement and inspiration in my painting ever since my first course with you at Dallam School all those years ago.
    To say ‘thank you’, I am wondering if you would accept a copy of my book of my paintings and writings, ‘A Walk in the Wild’?

    Warm wishes
