During the course of this full day workshop we will be making studies, planning out a painting, under – painting, colour mixing, mark making and bringing the painting to completion. This workshop is suitable for both beginners, improver’s and for those wanting to try a different subject or medium. You will follow Paul’s demonstration of a vibrant still life. A small group ensures plenty of individual attention, expert advice with emphasis on a relaxed approach and an enjoyable day.
