Summer at Holdenby (3) : Expressive Acrylics
Acrylics are such a versatile media in that they allow you to play with colour, texture and tone, and best of all, they dry quick enough that you can finish a painting (or more!) in a day.
With plenty of demonstrations, you will be shown how to use strong coloured underpainting for maximum impact, as well as techniques for painting loosely, with confidence, to create dramatic, expressive paintings.
The morning session will be an opportunity to experiment on a number of smaller studies, before finishing a painting in the afternoon, which you will be able to frame to take home.
This promises to be a great day, and is suitable for all levels. Tea, coffee and pastries will be provided on arrival, and a light lunch is included, courtesy of the wonderful Connies Tea Parlour.
