Painting by Candlelight (NEW)
3.00 - 9.00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with home cooked supper provided by Emily both evenings.
A unique opportunity to paint in the soft evening winter light of dusk and into darkness, in the beautiful setting of Rackham Village hall with its large windows overlooking the Downs. A sumptuous still life will be set up in the space for you to work from, lit by candles that will glow with light and enliven the shadows as the daylight fades. You will start work in the afternoon, working from observation making drawings and paintings on paper and canvas. As you get to know the subject, the light starts changing, whilst you carry on painting, allowing for changes in your work to unfold. Your finished paintings will be done freshly, fast and spontaneously to capture the magic of the moment.
