Floribunda - Pre-recorded

Now Offered as an Pre-recorded Online Course - You can start the course any time between June 24th 2020 and September 30th 2021. You can have access to the films for as long as you need. This is a pre-recorded version of the live online course that I did in May. It is created as a 4 day course and each days recording is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes long. It provides demonstrations and explanations of the processes and exercises that I offer. These are designed to help artists tackle the subject in a way that is expressive, personal and more intuitive. It also suggests ways to navigate the creative process and the journey that a body of work takes . The joy of being able to offer these recorded sessions is that you can work in your own studio space and at your own speed. You can watch them several times over and at a pace to suit your daily timetable. You can take much longer than four days if you need to. Once you have completed the course and made work, which does not have to be finished, you can send me images. I will enjoy looking at them and give you emailed feedback about what you have done and advice about how you might go forward..

The Working Landscape - Pre-recorded

Online Course - Pre-recorded The Working Landscape is a practical drawing and painting course led by Simon Carter. It comprises of four separate films, each one giving processes and inspiration for a days work in your own studio. However, the joy of having the films is that you can pause, rewind and revisit aspects of the film at your own pace. You can start when you want and take as long as you would like to complete it. The course gives you the opportunity to follow Simon in his working routines. His critically acclaimed paintings, in response to his local landscape, are masterful examples of the powerful, poetic beauty that paint can create when delivered with the confidence and experience of a professional artist. It is a rare opportunity to look over his shoulder as he walks and draws in the landscape, and as he draws and paints in the studio.

Floribunda 2 - Colour and Gesture

Online Course 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 small 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.

The Geography of Paint - May 2021

Online Course The Geography of Paint is a three day practical painting course led by Simon Carter.

It can be difficult to see how to use the drawings we make. Whether loose notes in a sketchbook or more complete and considered, our initial drawings often have a life and spark that is easily extinguished in the studio. This course will start with your own drawings made from the landscape, maybe from your garden, a local park or street, the beach or from a favourite walk and will look at different ways they can inspire a free and experi- mental approach to the painting process.
