On this course Alex will guide you through the painting of a complex still life arrangement from conception to resolution. Not all paintings are conceived, developed and delivered in the space of one art class; this course is a four week journey through one piece of work.
We offer a variety of courses that are aimed at different interests and abilities. The classes are mostly 2 hours long with ideas and suggestions that you can pursue beyond the class.
On this four-day Masterclass, you will explore the fundamentals of painting what you see using Still Life arrangements as your subjects. With a strong emphasis on colour. This class is suitable for all. Alex’s approach demystifies the experience of oil painting. He shows how looking at the world as a Jigsaw Puzzle of colour shapes you can make sense of it, and depict it in paint.
This portrait course will follow traditional portrait practise. The work will be in oils. This places great importance on drawing, tonal work, colour mixing and an emphasis on form.
On this two day workshop, you will explore how to paint a realistic depiction of the model, in their environment. You will capture a feeling of likeness, space, and the atmosphere of the light, by building the painting out of shapes of colour
We have a number of classes over the next few weeks, some in the studio, some only on Zoom. Some classes will be filmed for zoom with a few people taking part in the studio.
