A TIME FOR SUMMER...painting dandelion clocks in the summer landscape
Monday the 10th June 2019
10am to 4pm
£85 for the day

Don't miss this highly enjoyable summer workshop...

Have you ever wondered how you could capture the gossamer, ephemeral nature of a dandelion clock in paint?  In this workshop that is exactly what we will be aiming to do and then using our newly found skills to portray a summer landscape with a clump of dandelion clocks in the foreground.

We will be painting in watercolour and adding inks, cling film, salt and masking fluid with a palette knife to create beautiful delicate clocks and learning about composition and recession in a painting.

Techniques covered:

Ink and watercolour
Effects of cling film in a wash
Experimental ways of using masking fluid
Understanding recession and aerial perspective

Wednesday the 12th June
10am to 1pm
£35 for the morning

A wonderful morning spent in the National Trust grounds of Greys Court just outside of Henley where we will be sketching follies and flowers, please note that the price does not include the cost of entry into the gardens.
