It’s always such a joy to paint spring blossom, and this scene is from a well known walk in Killarney National Park. A pathway leads us under a beautiful archway of cherry trees in full bloom.
During the weekend workshop, we will each complete a painting on a canvas 16×20 inches, working from photographs and also a finished painting which I have prepared. I demonstrate each stage, as we go along explaining and analysing the techniques and colours that I have used. Participants then paint each stage step-by-step with me. There are up to 6 in the group and there will usually be a mixture of brush & palette knife.
The workshop is aimed at beginner and intermediate level, and I like to focus on giving as much information on methods and techniques as possible, so that people have something to work with when painting afterwards. We always have tea and coffee to hand, and take a break for home-made cake or scones half way through the morning.
