About The Artist:

Tim Fisher is a leading artist, author and popular art tutor. Born in Leicestershire, Tim became a professional artist in 2000. Since the launch of his career, he has won numerous art awards, including being short listed from 12,000 entrants for the first Daily Mail Not the Turner Prize competition.

Tim works with the heart of a purist and the mind of a realist. Whenever possible he collects his own reference material by observation, field sketches and taking photographs.

Tim`s book “How to Paint Flowers in Acrylic” by Search Press is now on general release and he is currently working on his second book about “Perspective.”

Tim will be demonstrating on his own surface; Fisher400 art paper. This will be provided free of charge for the exercises. Alternatively, sheets of watercolour paper can be used.

Materials and equipment (except a sketch book) are supplied on this workshop, however the notes below can be used as a guide if you would prefer to use your own.

Paint – Tim will be demonstrating with Daler-Rowney FW coloured indian inks, yellow ochre, Indigo, crimson. However, these can be substituted with three primary coloured tubed acrylics(ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow hue and cadmium red hue) a bottle of black FW acrylic ink is required ~ Indian Inks can also be substituted* .

Soft pastels – When selecting soft pastels, it is important to pick a good brand. Tim prefers Sennelier, but Unison or Daler Rowney are also good makes.
Avoid ‘general sets’ – you will find that a number of colours are garish and unsuitable try to get one more geared to landscape, The Sennelier sets made up of ½ size sticks are good value. You will also often find that ‘cheap’ sets contain very hard ‘soft’ pastels which are almost unworkable on watercolour paper.

*There will be a range of individual Sennelier pastels and Unison sets available to purchase on the day.
