Andrew James RP NEAC Portrait Painting In Oil

This intensive portrait painting workshop is for a small group of students, allowing time for personal guidance to develop individual’s skills in accordance to their ability. The course is built around aspects of expressive portraiture. Disciplined observational work will be pursued whilst looking to simultaneously develop the formal qualities of oil paint in order for it to become a more explicitly descriptive medium.

Finding a composition and building a painting  

Tom Stevenson ROI                      

3rd 4th June 2023 Oil Painting


A solid composition is the foundation of a good painting, yet often choosing a composition from the almost unlimited possibilities in front of us can be a difficult decision, affecting the outcome before we even begin painting.  


This two day course will look at how to identify a composition and how to take this forward to become a finished painting. We’ll start by focussing on drawing and using other dry mediums to practice techniques that help in finding and isolating a compositional idea before moving on to develop this in to a finished painting on day two.

Ian Rowlands Painting From Observation

23rd 24th July  Oil Painting

The course will introduce students to strategies for working with observed colour through the adoption of primary colour triads.

This will focus on the key shifts in colour perceived when working from observation

To facilitate this, students will experiment with structured mixing exercises prior to working from still life set ups. These will explore:


• Relativity of tone – employing a greyscale made from primaries and applied to a subject

• Hue change - following changing colour sensations within the chosen subject

• Saturation – looking at relative levels of colour purity



The aim of the exercises is to empower the students.

Alex Fowler Plein Air 
10th,11th,12th September 2022  Oil Painting

Over the three days we will address how to view the landscape as a painter. Students will be encouraged to work on quick “Alla Prima” paintings as a means of investigating how to make meaningful and highly charged paintings of the landscape in a short time and will develop a working method that allows them to be open to the numerous possible directions that a painting might take. We will work on number of canvases at once to encourage experimentation, and the surprise of the happy accident. Venues Blakeney, Cley, Sheringham.

During the course we will be working from the model to explore structure, likeness, picture construction, proportion and drawing and painting techniques.
