STILL LIFE DEMONSTRATION USING ACRYLIC AND PASTEL
CLICK HERE to join Heather as she turns a zesty still life into a beautiful painting using a simple palette, finishing off with pastel to add a sense of texture.
Suitable for all abilities.
ONLINE LANDSCAPE PAINTING USING A PHOTO AS REFERENCE
CLICK HERE to join Rebecca as she guides you through getting the best out of using a photo to create a beautiful painting without faithfully reproducing it, or getting bogged down in the detail.
Please feel free to download the image used in the demonstration if you would like to try this at home.
ONLINE BEGINNERS PORTRAIT SESSION
CLICK HERE to join Heather as she gently takes you through basic steps when starting out painting a self portrait. From first marks through to a finished painting using acrylics and pastels, this is a lesson which all the family can enjoy today using everyday paints and brushes.
