Big Sky Workshop with Lorraine Auton

This whole day workshop using acrylics on a large canvas will guide the group to produce a stormy sky in the morning session. A light buffet lunch and drinks will follow this. The afternoon session will involve the participants in creating a foreground of their choice to go on the sky they have produced. Everyone will need to bring their own canvas, ideally 3ft by 2ft (92cm by 61cm), or similar size. Cost including lunch: £50

Session 1:  STEP-BY-STEP WATERCOLOUR LANDSCAPE

Progressing on from pen and wash, we will do a simple step-by-step watercolour landscape using reference material. We will try out a variety of basic techniques ( in my least favourite medium - I'm doing it just for you! ).
