Autumnal Landscapes with Acrylic

Wednesday 7 November
10am –  5pm (there will be a break for lunch)
Venue: artsmart Studio Thame
Tutor: Jonathan Newey
Cost: £49.50

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This is a one day workshop that will show you how to paint autumnal landscapes with acrylic paint. Using photographs supplied by the tutor you will be shown how to use the easy, versatile medium of acrylic to paint an impressionist view of an autumn landscape. Techniques demonstrated will include using the paint thick and thin, colour mixing and brush strokes. By the end of the day you will have produced one painting. Ideal for beginners and students with some knowledge of the medium.

Tools and materials needed:
Surface:
 either Acrylic paper, canvas or canvas board or Watercolour paper 140lb ‘Not’ (cold pressed) surface (standard Bockingford is ideal), at least ¼ imperial (11 x 15 inches) or A3. If bringing sheets then you will need a board to tape it to (not necessary if bringing a pad)
Paint: Acrylic tubes or pots – Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna or Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, Cadmium Yellow, Titanium white, I recommend Daler Rowney System 3 or Winsor Newton Galleria, these are students range of paint therefore you shouldn’t need to pay any more than £4-£5 for a 75ml tube

Brushes:
 Acrylic brushes vary in size depending on manufacturer, so a size 8 from one manufacturer could be a completely different size in another so I have given sizes as the width of the group of hairs on the brush: 1 x ¼ inch wide round acrylic or oil painting brush, 1 x ½ inch wide round acrylic or oil painting brush, 1 x size 4 round watercolour brush, 1 x palette knife

Other materials:
Palette to mix paint on such as a tear off paper palette or a few paper plates, tissues or rag, 2B pencil, water container, an old shirt to wear when painting.
You are welcome to bring other tools and materials such as different colours, paper, brushes etc. that you are familiar with.
