Two Day Course
Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th June 2021
Join Roger Dellar for this full weekend Plein Air workshop and discover his process and techniques for creating an oil painting from start to finish, whilst working outside. Harwich has a fantastic mix of marine, architectural, beach and estuary subjects right on the door step of our studios; you will have no trouble finding a scene to inspire you!
This workshop will cover what makes a successful composition, what to include and as importantly what to leave out of a picture. Using a limited pallet he will also teach you how to simplify colour mixing, allowing you to work faster; an invaluable skill when working plein air. You will learn the fundamentals of how to paint over wet paint and how to add those all important highlights that bring a composition together. Roger will also share with you the ways in which he deals with the everyday practicalities of working outside.
As a highly successful gallery artist Roger has a wealth of experience to share with his students, making this an exceptionally fulfilling event.
Roger is equally happy teaching beginners and experienced artists, making this workshop open to anyone who has a desire to paint.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
