Join me on this one day mixed media seascape workshop... Students will create an exciting shoreline seascape with splash, rocks and scrub. Texture and effects are layered with gesso, resist, ink and watercolour pencils, along with watercolour painting. Susan will be guiding you through this layering process. Heavyweight paper and gesso will be provided, along with wax resist and white acrylic ink.

The day includes tea, coffee, pastries, lunch and homemade cakes.
Fee: £75

Impressionistic Watercolour Scenery

Saturday 26th May, 2017

10.30 am - 4.00 pm

Try out some new ways to use mixed media in your watercolour paintings... Susan will demonstrate a variety of unusual techniques with clingfilm, string, acrylic ink and gesso.  You will have time to experiment with these for yourself, before heading outside to paint from life using Hyde Hall's scenery for inspiration.  Susan will provide individual guidance and support as required.  Please bring your own painting kit. Heavyweight paper and gesso will be provided, along with other unusual tools to try.

Fee: RHS members £57, Non-RHS members £68

NEW: Evening Workshops in Chelmsford!

I have three evening workshops at the CAS venue, the Link Room, between now and Christmas... 
Dates are 26 Oct, 23 Nov and 7 Dec, from 7.30 - 9.30 pm 
Cost £20 per session. 
I will be taking deposits of £5 per session, spaces limited to 12. 

Sessions will include a demo and individual coaching. 
Subjects will be fairly broad, based on composition challenges, to encourage individual growth and experimentation (not a paint-along).

26 Oct -  "Creating Atmosphere" 
23 Nov - "Creating Texture" 
  7 Dec - "Vibrant Darks" 

This allows your choice of subject matter and you can paint in watercolour, mixed media, acrylics or other media if preferred. 

This is not a beginner's course, but rather aimed at those who have some command of their paints and want to move a little out of their comfort zone, whilst having fun!

Send me an email to indicate your interest to <>.
Open to CAS members and non-members alike.
Bring your own painting kit, (water, tea, coffee and biscuits provided).
