A Painting Course in beautiful Devon, learning to paint gardens and scenery at a time of fresh colourful new spring foliage. Spring bulbs, early flowering trees and perennials add to the beauty of gardens at this time of year. Studio sessions cover useful drawing and painting skills and we will try these out during the week at a nearby garden, using it as inspiration for sketching and painting. We will cover sketching, tonal values and composition, negative painting and colour mixing. Students bring their own choice of painting medium and receive individual advice on use of materials and painting skills; you may wish to use the opportunity to try out a new medium with a tutor to guide you.
