Flowers and gardens -  Painting colour and light
Includes a trip to Aberglasney Gardens
June 2021 - dates to follow

Flower and garden painting has been popular through the ages and especially with those beginning to paint, but can sometimes be disappointing failing to produce the very qualities that inspired us in the first place. Colour, light and form are extremely important in order to make a visual statement, which, like the subject, becomes a thing of beauty. We will work in both acrylic and watercolour during this painting course, learning about colour and studying such qualities as transparency, clarity, softness, depth, composition and visual impact. There will be a trip to Aberglasney Gardens as part of the course.
