This course is designed for students with less confidence or experience with painting in oils and acrylics. However, it could equally be a very refreshing course for an experienced painter who would like to strip back their process again and rediscover how wonderfully versatile and evocative paint is. Last years Simply Paint course was a joy to teach as we took each stage of the process of discovering paint; taking time to mix it, layer it, add mediums and begin to gain an insight into the numerous possibilities it has to offer. This course continues this exploration revealing yet more gorgeous qualities.
