Loosen up your painting style. Communicate more with less. Let go conventional ideas about realistic colour and obsessive detail, and instead be expressive and spontaneous with colour, and launch into bold, sweeping brushstrokes on a large scale.
Lois Cordelia continues her popular series of "Speed-Painting" workshops (ideal for beginners and anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style), using acrylics, at Tindalls, Ely. Each workshop is themed according to subject matter (e.g. human portraits, animal portraits, townscapes, etc), or with an emphasis on a specific method of working (e.g. using palette knife, or shimmering colours). Please see the below list of dates and workshops.
You will work loosely based on photographic references. The focus will be more on freedom of expression than on achieving an accurate likeness, though Lois will be happy to give advice on both. Prior experience is helpful but not essential. Ideal workshops for beginners and anyone wanting to loosen up their painting style.
Cost: £35 per workshop.
Times: 10.00 am - 4.00 pm.
Venue: Tindalls Arts & Crafts, 4 Market Place, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB7 4NP
