The focus of this workshop will be on how to paint landscape in a free loose style and create art works that have that atmospheric ethereal quality. Robert will demonstrate and guide students in an easy step by step process on how to analyse and simplify the subject. Robert will offer insight on colour mixing with a limited colour palette also on brush technique and paint applications using palette knives to create textures to add another dimension.
