(Clayton - le - Moors) Saturday 30 July, 2016 (1.00 - 3.30) - Fir Trees in Galloway Forest - A Watercolour Landscape

Galloway Forrest and Cairnsmore of Fleet
Watercolour Painting with Malcolm Bullock at:
Harrington Street, Clayton –le-Moors, Accrington, BB5 4DF - 01254 389 611
Malcolm will demonstrate how to paint an effective watercolour landscape featuring fir trees and a wet in wet mountain background which is based on Galloway forest in South West Scotland.

The afternoon will feature a paint-along where the participants will create a watercolour painting featuring fir trees in Galloway Forest using a wet into wet technique for the background and more detailed trees in the foreground. Reference to an instructional sheet (to help with the trees and which you keep), photographs and the original painting will be available to aid the completion of the painting.

The techniques used will follow a step by step
approach. This method of teaching allows the individual to quickly develop confidence in using the paints. Skills are also built up through the explanation of the various techniques used in painting the scene. The development of a personal style of painting is encouraged through individual assessment at various stages of the painting. No one paints exactly the same, we are all unique.

Course Fee - £12.00p

This includes all art materials as well as the loan of brushes etc.

Booking is preferable as course numbers will be kept small to ensure individual attention.
