I’m really happy to finally launch my online, 12 week painting course, accessible to all on a pay as you go basis (if you have a computer and internet!)
Start anytime – there will have a new subject each week, and you will be able to dip in and out as you like.
There will be one course for acrylics, and eventually one for oils.
* Each week, I’ll release a new online painting video, with accompanying notes, full instructions and a painting exercise. You will retain access to the video for the whole week (longer if needed).
*I’d then like you to photograph your resulting paintings and share them with me, so that I can give you individual advice and helpful tips – via whatever messenger service is most accessible to you.
*Pay as you go to access a new session each week – which will be £20, for now, payable by bank transfer or Paypal. I don’t want to charge a block advance fee as people may get ill and need a week or so off!
It’s a flexible materials list, but for the course, you will need:
Acrylic board or canvas boards, whichever size you prefer.
(Acrylic paper is ok if taped onto a board. Other paper isn’t ideal unless very thick, taped onto a drawing board and primed with gesso)
Acrylics – the following, or similar: titanium white, cadmium red, lemon yellow, ultramarine, pthalo blue, pthalo green, sap green, purple/violet, plus a small amount of black or paynes grey for the first day of the course (tonal painting)
Brushes – a medium flat, filbert and a liner or rigger brush.
Water pot, cloth/tissue/wipes, large palette (plate is fine!)
I recommend using an easel – or at least a table easel – but its not essential!
(for the first week – you will only need white and black acrylic (or any dark tone) this week, as it’s a tonal painting session 😊 a flat brush, and a surface to paint on! It is an excellent way to warm yourself up for the rest of the course – and get moving that paint around with a bit of freedom!
