Landscape Painting in Acrylics View details

This course is intended for students with some experience of producing a painting (perhaps in watercolours, pastels or oils). We will explore observation, imagination, atmosphere and personal response to create explorative and evocative paintings on a reasonably large scale (50cm x 60cm). A basic knowledge of acrylic painting is necessary as this will be an improvers course and focuses on more advanced practical techniques and conceptual awareness. The course includes creating suitable surfaces, exercises in drawing, using pencil & charcoal, painting, use of rags and palette knives.   We will explore the transition from representational naturalism to abstract painting. Weather permitting we will be working outside for some of the session, the parkland of Dartington is a short walk away from the studio door. We will also look at the development of formal elements and obscurity in picture making, using imagination, expression and atmosphere.
