Beginners landscape painting

If you've enjoyed our Drawing courses and want to take those tentative steps to trying your hand at painting then try our one day masterclass in the park with artist Selwyn Leamy (author of Tate's 'master oils' and 'read this if you want to be great at drawing') . During this workshop Selwyn will teach you how to use acrylic paints and mix primary colours, how to paint on canvas and board and how to work on a basic composition. Once you've got to grips with the essentials Selwyn will set you up with your own painting, and guide you through the steps to create your own masterpiece.

The last couple of hours of the session will be spent in the pub, for some drinks, merry making, and of course reviewing our paintings.
