Painting A Clothed Figure

Anastasia Pollard  
11th 12th February 2023   Oil Painting

During this workshop we will explore the clothed figure, focusing on achieving a likeness through the careful observation of essential shapes and accurate tonal and colour relationships. We will also be pushing the painting beyond a “head study” by understanding how the background relates to the figure, harmonising the colour values of the clothing with the portrait while expressing the contrast of textures.

   £190                                                                                              Hindolveston NR20 5DD                                                               



Portrait Painting in Oils

Ilaria Rosselli Del Turco  
11th 12th March 2023   Oil Painting

The workshop will start with a demo and an explanation about materials and how to put together a palette that works for each student. We will also discuss how to “read” the temperature of the light and the way this affects colour mixing, as well as talking about composition, the tonal scale and chromatic harmony.

We will then start to work directly in oils on canvas, without preparatory drawings. Students will be encouraged to produce two or three studies during the workshop: the emphasis is not on “finishing” the portrait but on the process of recording their observation on light and form.

Life Painting In Oils

Adele Wagstaff 

22nd 23rd April 2023  Oil Painting 

The course will cover all aspects of making a well composed painting of the nude, from drawing to setting up, colour-mixing, and exploring how tone and colour temperature can be used to describe the structure, shape, form and anatomy of the human body. Our model will hold one sustained pose throughout the two days, 

Through drawing, and the making of a small-scale tonal study participants will begin to refine their ideas of composition before beginning to work on a painting using the extended palette. We will introduce basic colour theory, mixing and laying-out a palette. There will be one-to-one tuition throughout the two days, alongside group discussions as we look at how all the paintings are progressing, and the course will end with a group discussion as we look at each others’ work.

Navigating Perceived Colour  

Ian Rowlands                      

20th 21st May 2023 Oil Painting


A 2-day workshop working with primary triads and restricted palettes with the aim of developing an understanding of the key functions or attributes of colours within the palette. Together, we will explore relativity of tone, hue, saturation and temperature.

Working with restricted palettes can help foster an intuitive and unprejudiced approach to identifying and translating observed colour. The workshop will begin with structured exercises before working from still life set ups. 

 £170                                                                                               Hindolveston NR20 5DD                                               



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.

 Plein Air Landscape Painting

Alex Fowler 
24th 25th 26th June 2023  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.
