This workshop will focus on the more intimate aspects of a seascape such as the breaking of waves over a rock or looking into a rock-pool. It means taking a different viewpoint and looking at a seascape differently. It is not always about the big picture. Sometimes the smaller areas are what are most fascinating.

We will take a look at these snapshots and interpret and reproduce them on canvas. We will work step-by-step in the class so you can follow my method of painting, Alla Prima. We will cover tonal value, composition, colour mixing and hopefully have an enjoyable time as well!

Should be a nice way to spend a week in the heat of Summer!
