Using acrylic and mixed media, spend the day with artist Rachel Cronin as she demonstrates several approaches to creating abstracted, contemporary landscapes.

Using an autumn colour palette and working from local scenery, you will be shown how to abbreviate landscape features to shapes and lines, whilst exploring an expressive approach to painting.

During the morning we will create simple studies using a mixture of coloured crayons, pastels, and charcoal. We will initially work from source material, but our preliminary studies will be taken though a number of stages in order to abstract them and create new compositions.

During the afternoon session we use acrylic paint to create small expressive studies on wooden boards.

Painters of all levels of ability are welcome. All materials are provided but if you would like to bring along some of your favourite tools or paint, please feel free.
