Improve your understanding and use of colour in painting on this practical landscape-painting course, situated in the vibrant and diverse landscapes of Jersey, Channel Islands.
Within a short walk, are the famous White cliffs owned by the National Trust overlooking the Channel.
The cliffs are home to diverse wildlife and chalk loving plants including orchids. Behind the cliffs lies the South Foreland valley, a beautiful wooded area grazed by Dexter cattle. The South Foreland valley leads down to St Margaret’s Bay where Henry Moore took inspiration from the flints that form part of the high cliffs towering above the bay From the bay The Pines Gardens (owned by a private trust, but open to the public with a voluntary contribution from visitors), is a lovely garden with views over the bay. Finally there is host’s own large sculpture garden, providing colour and tranquility for students. All these places are within a few minutes walk from the house.
The course will consist of a mixture of exercises and painting in the landscape. Students will learn about the practicalities of working as an artist in the landscape, experience the emergency of painting plein air and sensitizing yourself to the experience of colour, both on and off the canvas.
Please be prepared to embrace the unsettled British weather – there are various verandas and shelters available and a golf umbrella and waterproofs never go amiss if required!
We will use oil or acrylic and you will need to bring all your painting and art materials with you.
