Colour and texture in the Landscape Tutor Sara Bor

Thursday 20th and Friday 21st March 2014  9.30am – 4.30pm
This 2 day workshop is about a response to landscape through colour, marks and textures. It focuses on building up the surface of the canvas using either oil or acrylic to create a unique and exciting outcome, informing your practice with some fresh and exciting ideas. You will be drawing directly from the landscape, exploring how to create a unique colour palette;  experimenting with mark making  using a range of different tools to create individual textures and  building up layers of colour, then applying the new skills you have learnt to develop your ideas on canvas with one to one tuition available.
The workshop is aimed at both artists and beginners wishing to explore new methods of working.

Day 1 will focus on drawing directly from the landscape, detailed sketches, colour studies and photographs.  In the afternoon back in  the studio there will be demonstrations  and you will be carrying out colour exercises, mark making exercises developing your ideas and preparing your canvases.

Day 2 will be studio based, using your reference material you will be transferring your ideas to canvas experimenting with all the skills you have learnt on first day, with one to one tuition available.
