New Workshops Dates for 2019! Landscape or Floral, Client’s Choice

A few places remain on my forthcoming workshop dates at home, see dates and details of how to book below.

Wednesday 19th June 2019

Those attending can bring their own ideas to work from or work from what I supply. We cover how to draw and set up a work, mixing colours and the different techniques of watercolour. All aspects of materials, brushes, paper and paints bespoke to those attending on the day. All the rules of perspective, tone and seeing are relevant to what ever medium you prefer. Great fun and hugely informative. 

Private workshop for up to 4 people at my studio in Newbold on Stour, CV37 8UN.

Price £65.00 per person per day, including lunch and use of my equipment if necessary. Non-transferable and non-refundable. Payable on booking. 

Credit cards accepted.

To book please either email or telephone 07966 252734.

Louise Walker BA hons. PTLLS.

I worked in the television and film industry for 40 years as a costume designer and that has affected the way I practise. I come from the stand point of light, composition, depth of field, contrast and distilling the scene. I work using photography, sketches and working "en plain air", and the same principles apply whether working in oils, acrylics, pastels, or water colour, in fact any medium. So this discussion applies to both workshops.

Water Colour Floral Workshop

I demonstrate the different use of papers, brushes and techniques and how I have adapted these for floral works. Those attending a floral workshop can bring their own material to paint or work from a photograph, and for those beginners we can trace an image for them to work from. To give confidence and get started. The work we produce is normally tighter and more detailed than the Landscape workshop.

Landscape Workshop

I demonstrate the different use of papers , brushes and techniques and how I have adapted these for landscape work. This is a looser way of painting techniques and involves the principles mentioned in the first paragraph, using water colour, with a broader, looser approach. The pupils will find they can use this approach for any subject matter, and if in the summer pupils felt they wanted to paint “en plain air” they have a basis to start or continue from.
