This LANDSCAPE ART, 10.00AM - 4.30PM workshop with artist Jonathan Shearer will explore a variety of ways to manipulate different materials working outdoors.

Painting A Walk

This weekend PAINTING A WALK, 10.00AM - 4.00PM course with artist Oliver Reed, aims to explore the local landscape through making a series of painting studies during a walk through the changing landscape and conditions encountered. Workin in oils, acrylics or watercolour, participants will spend the first day gathering a range of painting studies by walking sections, or completely around, the headland of Cromarty.

On the second day, you'll move to the studio and make works that convey the experience, either in an abstracted or representational approach to create something that explores the journey taken.
£100 for two days - includes lunch.
