Marilyn Allis – Figures Movement and Light (watercolour)

Date: 10th September 2016
Time: 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Spaces: 5



This is a fantastic one day workshop for students who would like to learn how to paint people in watercolour. Using a loose brush style and minimal brush strokes you will discover how to keep the play of light and movement really fresh.

Marilyn says “people are just a few blobs of paint, using the light and dark shapes you see, you will attempt paintings you thought were difficult, with ease”.

A day with Marilyn promises to be great fun and incredibly rewarding.

Includes homemade lunch, refreshments and cream tea
