(Clayton-le-Moors) A Painting Workshop for Beginners: An Introduction to Abstract Painting - Saturday 9th July, 1.30 to 4.00pm

A Low Key Mountain Abstract
A watercolour (Gouache) painting lesson at Nursery End Garden Centre, Harrington St, Clayton - le - Moors, BB5 4DF. 01254 389 611
The aim of the lesson is to teach how to construct an abstract picture. The student should hopefully leave with a completed painting.

Malcolm will explain and demonstrate how to paint an effective abstract painting, drawing on a range of previously produced paintings, photographic material. and sketches. He will discuss the techniques used to produce the final painting using a step by step approach which allows the student to quickly develop confidence while also acquiring their own style of painting.

Some of Malcolms later work has been inspired by the late German Artist, Paul Klee and this Workshop will centre itself on producing work of a style similar to Klee’s work after he had been to Egypt in 1928. Alternatively you will be able to try your hand at painting mountain abstracts.

The course fee is £12.50p which includes all materials needed as well as the loan of brushes.

Booking is preferable as numbers will be kept small to guarantee individual attention. There will be a small number of places available on the day.
