3-day or daily workshop acrylic painting with Diane King
6 placeS available
The variety of landscapes Penryn (South Cornwall) has to offer, provides a wealth of opportunities to sketch and paint. From sweeping tidal rivers to green valleys and secret Ope there is an abundance of local jewels to capture during the course.
During Diane’s sessions, she will help students learn and experiment with the technique of acrylic painting and talk about the tools and skills involved in creating different styles and textures.
The full 3-day course will be broken down into a mixture of daily workshops. The first two days will include a mix of 2hr sketching sessions to collect compositions and painting sessions in the studios.
WORKSHOP ONE (Monday 10-4 pm) – you will be introduced to Diane and her techniques of using acrylic paint. Then after lunch, you will join Diane for a 2hr Plein air sketching session to find a composition to start prepping for the following day. Diane will answer any queries back at the studio at the end of the session and give you some evening homework to prepare a board/canvas for the following day.
WORKSHOP TWO (Tuesday 10-4 pm) – you will start the first layers of your first composition with Diane’s guidance. Then afternoon there will be a short session to return to the site of your study to collect more information for your painting before returning to finish for the day.
WORKSHOP THREE (Wednesday 10-4 pm) – The whole day will be spent on finishing your composition and will end with a round table discussion of your and others’ work. Diane will be on hand the whole day to guide you and answer any queries you have about the development of your work
