Taking the work of both the Impressionists and Post Impressionists as inspiration in our morning slide shows, we venture into the landscape and into Hugo’s garden to find our subjects, where students will be introduced to the a world of colour and the way colour works. Experimenting with the nuts and bolts of painting, this is a perfect course for both beginners and the less experienced oil painters who wish to further build their confidence in the processes of painting.
We will be looking at the key elements in picture making, including how to create a strong composition and the complex relationships between colour and tonal value. We will also consider the different ways in which a subject can be treated, and how one can express a variety of thoughts, feelings and mood through the medium of oil paint.
The 5 day course will be held at Hugo’s home in West Milton. It is a delightful house, with beautiful gardens and sweeping vistas of of the hilly Dorset countryside. The studio is a spacious marquee where you can further develop your initial sketches and paintings. We will be focusing on painting out of doors in the Dorset landscape, so please bring suitable footwear. The course is non-residential, but will include delicious homemade lunches and refreshments every day which are always a highlight!
The teaching part of the day will run daily 10am – 4.30pm, Friday 10am – 3pm but students are welcome to stay on and paint in the landscape.
You will be sent a detailed materials list on booking.
