Monday 30th July to Tuesday 31st July

You can tackle landscape very confidently if you enjoy painting trees and skies. We'll explore different techniques to paint a variety of trees. We'll paint a couple of oil painting cloud studies, then do a sky from one of your own photos on a larger canvas. We'll be painting different sorts of trees on small 5"x7" canvasses using brushes, palette knives, sponges and anything else that works well and also figure out 'The Battle of the Greens'. There will be tree photos for you to work from. After experimenting with different skies, everyone will paint a large sky study from their own photo. Bring your printed sky photos (not sunsets!).
Materials costs: All your specialist equipment will be provided for 16.50 which includes 11 small canvasses and a larger one plus oils, brushes, 2 palette knives each, solvent etc. This course costs a little more than the 3-day landscape course as extra oils and canvasses will be required.
