Very soon I'm going to be running art classes in the Doncaster area. Starting from Wednesday, 29th April 2020, the classes will take place at Cantley Community Centre. Each session is two hours long (10:00 am to 12:00 noon) and the 10-week course costs £120 per person.
If you've looked at my artwork and are thinking that you don't want to paint surreal landscapes populated with scary creatures then please be reassured. We won't be painting that kind of subject matter. In fact, I like painting landscapes in my spare time as you can see below in my painting of Souther Fell in the Lake District.
Our first project will be to paint this still life of oranges. The paints we'll be using are Linda Wain's Procolour Artist Acrylics. They are very forgiving paints and are great for beginners and experts alike. This still life painting will allow you time to get used to these excellent paints.
After we have completed this project we'll move on to a landscape. This will develop your skills in colour mixing, creating depth in a painting, and painting a variety of textures.
Don't worry if this looks tricky. I'll take you through each project step by step, showing you how to do one section which you'll then paint with my support. We'll repeat this process until the whole painting is complete. At the end of the 10-week course you'll have created two paintings that you can be proud of!
If you have any questions about these classes, don't hesitate to contact me:
