About The Course
‘The tuition was excellent, with lots of new ways of looking and approaches to painting. I learnt a lot which I can use in my own practice’ – Caroline Smith
The course will be an exciting opportunity to be tutored by a New English Art Club member and a highly inspirational artist. To start Louise will introduce her work, and outline her way of working. Throughout the weekend there will be a focus on learning to loosen up, and the importance of working quickly and directly. Students will draw outside (weather permitting) and create studies using oil on paper, concentrating on simplifying impressions and identifying the main visual ideas. We will then begin to work on a painting, or maybe more than one. There will be a critique at lunchtime on the second day.
Students will move between drawing outside and painting as they prefer, and Louise will provide one-to-one tuition and help as they work. Some of Louise’s own work and sketchbooks, together with information about other relevant artists, will be available as reference and from which to draw inspiration and knowledge.
Includes good coffee and refreshments.
10am – 4pm both days
