Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August

The course is for students who are familiar with the basics of colour mixing and want to 'use colour better'. You will develop your ability to play with colour, how to place it alongside others for greater effect, and how much to use to create interesting and dynamic compositions. You will work to unpick some of the theory behind planning a good composition in colour followed by an opportunity to apply what you have learnt. You will be guided by your tutor at all times. Some activities will be the same as those covered in 2018, others will be altered or extended to cater for both new and returning students.
Demonstrations will be in acrylics or Artisan water soluble oils (you can use regular oils if you wish). You will receive a materials list for more information on what to bring.

She works from her studio in Oxford and for Abingdon & Witney College, managing the tutors and curriculum for creative subjects. Her painting continues to develop through a love of the natural environment, particularly the visual structure of our human altered land scape. She works from observation, photographic records and memory.
