LARGE is BEAUTIFUL – PAINTING COURSE – August 7th to 10th, 2017
BONNARD said: “nature stands still in front of me so that I can invent from her”
Let’s use this four-day course in Oxfordshire to explore the motifs suggested by the gardens and landscape around Oxleaze .
This course takes place in a well-appointed studio with chairs, easels, projector, tables and all the materials and paint you need, will be intense and encouraging, founded in research yet subject to gesture and emotion.
This year I propose that this course, ‘Large is Beautiful’, we will attempt one large painting (say 90cm x 120cm) amongst daily exercises – using the landscape as a foundation.
Slides, drawing, composition, fill in on large canvas in acrylics
Slides, tonal experiments outside, then apply to same large canvas in acrylics
Slides, colour theory studies, applied to same large canvas in oils
Slides, markmaking with the brush, on large canvas in oils
All necessary teas, coffees, biscuits and a delicious salady lunch (and wine) are provided every day.
