HAVING FUN WITH ABSTRACTION

December 1st at 18:30 to December 3rd at 13:30
Higham Hall College, Bassenthwaite Lake
Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 9SH United Kingdom

More and more painters are tempted by Abstraction. Some add elements in to modernise their own art. Others just want to have fun and express themselves in a non-realistic way, embracing the freedom. On this joyous painting course, explore colour combinations, compatible shapes, the balance of busy and empty and which compositional formats work most effectively.

WATERCOLOURS: THE METHODS OF JOHN SINGER SARGENT

Sunday February 6, 2022 at 18:30 to Tuesday February 8, 2022 at 13:30
Higham Hall College, Bassenthwaite Lake
Cockermouth, Cumbria CA13 9SH United Kingdom

Sargent's watercolours are bold, often highly-colourful evocations of bright sunlight and felt by many painters to be some of the greatest ever created. After years of research and experimentation, Jason has unpicked the technical approaches used by Sargent, to closely mimic the Master's approaches. He will share his findings, demonstrating Sargent's methods, helping you paint your own copies and then adapt the approach within your own art. Not for total watercolour beginners.
