THE EXPERIMENTAL LANDSCAPE – MIXED MEDIA PAINTING WORKSHOP
SATURDAY 20TH NOVEMBER 2021. 12,00 – 4.00PM
Artist Geoff Chilton demonstrates some of the techniques he uses to produce mixed media paintings, from simplifying scenes and underpainting to using colour and overlaying media. This workshop is for those who would like to incorporate new techniques into their work, begin working in mixed media, or want some ideas for using colour and texture. (For examples of Geoff’s work see the ‘Gallery’ page on this website).
The workshop is limited to a maximum of ten people. Basic equipment will be provided, but if you are more comfortable using your own paints, brushes, easel etc please feel free to bring them with you. (Working in oils isn’t recommended for this session due to the time it takes for them to dry). Also, please bring a few photographs of scenes you would like to paint; part of the session includes advice on how to simplify scenes and compose your paintings.
