Course dates: April 11th - 13th 2022 (Monday - Wednesday) This course will be 3 days of expressive painting inspired by the abundance and beauty of Spring flowers. The focus for finding a language for our paintings will be through colour and gesture. Working on a series of between 6 – 9 paintings over the 3 days we will celebrate the colour, the ordered chaos and the scent and joy of the subject. Gathering armfuls of colours and marks from the inspiration of the flowers to work with we will compose them by layering, selecting, editing, simplifying and inventing. The paintings will be an exploration into how to capture the life, light, delicacy and poetry of the subject. In the end the paintings themselves will become the subject.
