Expressive Landscape Painting Classes (Fridays)

Held by Richard K Blades

Expressive Painting Classes

In these weekly classes, we will be looking at the landscape and learning how to interpret it in an expressive way, using a variety of techniques, ways of working and seeing.

These classes are suitable for both beginners and those with a little more practice. I aim to help build your skills and confidence week by week as we try new techniques and explore various themes. There will be demonstrations and plenty of one to one time. If it is your first time painting in a while or you are looking to expand your ways of working, this course will offer you many tools to aid your creativity.

With an aim to help you become accomplished in interpreting the landscape in your way, we will work from photographs, our imagination and in the warmer months, outside in the beautiful countryside that surrounds us.

My approach is always on the individual journey, regardless of previous experience. Each of us has a creative path to follow and I am a firm believer in developing ones individual way. So wherever you are on your journey, I will meet you there and help you navigate your way forward.
