9.15 am – 4.0 pm

Using inks, gouache wax resist, collage and many other techniques.
Alison will lead a second workshop where students can release their inhibitions working and responding to the landscape in the open air.  She will give an introduction to analysing and composing the landscape and demonstrate a range of techniques in many media including inks, wax resist, bleach, and collage.  She will generously share her repertoire of techniques including her dynamic approach to using inks.   Students will learn ways to introduce light and atmosphere into their landscapes and layering effects to create depth and perspective.  The course will broaden your range of skills and encourage a fresh and experimental approach to landscape painting, come prepared to really engage with these techniques and push your boundaries.  Suitable for all levels.
Price: £225. To include high quality paper, some materials and a delicious lunch.
