Achieve a better understanding of light and colour through painting from life with international award winning artist and outdoor oil painting specialist  Leon Holmes 

In this workshop we will focus on making outdoor painting (Plein Air) enjoyable and easily accessible. We will explore composition (what and why to paint it) and I will explain how to strip that subject back to its simplest forms. Then we will delve deeper into understanding how light affects colour and how to transfer all of that quickly onto the canvas using a luscious, jucy paint application to really show off the qualities of oil paint. (Weather permitting, we will venture outdoors to put these lessons into practice.) 

I am forever having students tell me that their head is exploding with information and that I have opened their minds to a whole new way of painting.

Look let’s be clear … Leon is a legend !!! His love of plein air painting is laid bare in both his technical ponderings and his critique of us amateur artists. And I leaned lots … his theory was illuminating and his positive comments wandering thru the maze of eisels was comforting. As Molly says … do yourself a favour and book a class with Leon !!!
