Beginners landscape painting Part 1

If you've enjoyed our drawing courses or, you are already feel quite confident about drawing, and would love to take those tentative steps towards trying your hand at painting then this is the course for you! Designed as a two part programme to enable you to produce and complete a landscape painting on the beautiful Hampstead Heath in London.  Using a limited colour palette of acrylic paints, you will carry out some warm up exercises learning how to block out shades and shapes, blend colours, then learn how to paint on canvas boards on a basic composition. Once you've got to grips with the essentials will set you up with your own painting, and guide you through the steps to create your own masterpiece. 

This is not designed as a stand-alone course. The learning process requires time to digest the information and come back for part 2 to continue the process
