Cherry Blossom Tuesdays 2021 weekly course 2-4pm June 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th
The painting is based on the lovely cherry blossom walk in Killarney National Park. Plenty of impasto palette-knife painting in this one, as we get stuck-in with a decadent abundance of crimson alizarin!
The canvas is 16×20 inches, and we work 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 8 in the group and there will usually be a mixture of brush & palette knife.
The workshop is live on-line via Zoom from my studio on Sherkin Island, Co Cork. Do come and visit when lock-down is over!
The course 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.
Course Fee = €130 including all materials, €100 including the prepared canvas only, €80 course only.
If you would like to purchase materials, please book in time to allow for delivery of materials.
