The day will start with Chris giving a short demonstration of his approach to acrylic painting, followed by informal individual advice and help as you embark on your own paintings. Reference material will be supplied by Chris, but you are very welcome to use your own sketches and photos. The workshop session will finish with a short, helpful appraisal of the days paintings.
Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea.
About the Artist
After studying art and graphics in Bristol, Chris began a career in illustration. Constantly trying to extend and add to his skills, he became a self taught watercolour painter, before moving on to other water-based media. He has exhibited on numerous occasions with the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour.
More recently Chris has developed a mixed-media approach to his work, combining watercolour, acrylic, pastel and gouache. He says “I am exhilarated by colour and surface and enjoy creating textured layers of dry-brushed colour that allow hints of complementary hue to glow through, thus creating an exciting surface of scattered, broken colour”.
