Painting without Brushes

Paint your own tree-scape on canvas. Working from a photograph of a glorious spring forest, you will recreate the forest using the art movement Impressionism as an inspiration.

Experiment with different techniques for applying paint using a palette knife, scraping into paint, using old credit cards/sponges/rags/spray to apply paint. It is useful if you have had experience of painting before.

About the Course:

For the workshop, you will need to buy/bring: Acrylic paint and palette knives if you have any, any old credit/gift cards and any pieces of old sponge or rags. You will also need to bring a photograph of a woodland scene that you would like to paint or chose one from a selection provided.

A square canvas will be provided along with a basic colour palette. You are welcome to bring your acrylics or canvas to extend your choice.

Tutor: Ashling Barrow

Ashling completed her Art degree in Belfast, her PGCE in Bristol, she was in London, teaching Art and Design in Camden and Tower Hamlets to deprived and often difficult-to-reach students. In this most urban of environments, her escape was Hampstead Heath - a chance and place to breathe. Within this huge space, she found tranquillity - in a circle of trees on the west-side, just below Kite Hill. She would return to this sanctuary many times, through times of reflection on successes and personal loss. Ashling will also be exhibiting art at Forest Arts from the 10 Feb - 21 March 2020!
