Exploring structure in the garden landscape with Sarah Spackman RBA

10th July - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

This one day workshop will look at finding the structure within the picture that you have chosen to paint. We will look at the different images found in the garden and sculptural landscape, and see how we can simplify the different areas of our painting to maintain the colour relationships between the light and shadow. Using oil paint and a limited palette, we will practise mixing colours to help define the structure within the painting.

You will need to bring a portable easel, stool, a sketchbook, charcoal, a large palette, palette knife for mixing colours, several oil painting brushes of various sizes, and a couple of ready primed boards for oil painting-preferably primed with white. You will also need solvent for cleaning brushes and plenty of rags.

Please bring the following oil paint colours: Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium yellow, Cadmium red, Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean blue, Ultramarine blue
