Taster Day

Daniel Shadbolt NEAC Portrait Painting In Oils 
 4th,5th April 2020

Two views   Oil Painting 

 This workshop will be structured around the basis that each student will paint a profile and a frontal or near frontal three quarter view portrait study. Alternate views offer differing challenges and discoveries of the model.  Separate morning and afternoon sessions over the two days should enable the chance to take a picture further.
Tuition will be given individually.  
Palette discussion and demonstration will be concerning the benefits of using either an earth or chromatic palette and for the alternate challenges of colour and tone.
Seeing the head primarily as form or structure, will be encouraged for the purposes of building the painting up.


 £170                                                                                     Colman Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4 7HA

James Bland NEAC Structure and Abstraction in Flowers  In Oils 
9th,10th May 2020   Oil Painting 

As well as being a fascinating subject in its own right, flower painting from life is an ideal complement to portrait and landscape practice. Like these other genres, it focuses on unique organic subjects that present changes over time and has a similar need for painterly summarisation realised in the moment.

On this new course you will use oil paint and charcoal to understand and form responses to the structural and abstract properties of flowers, using full-bodied oil paint to create work that has impact and power. By pursuing shape and colour as far as possible towards abstraction, the focus will move from the detail of the subject to the essential elements.

There will be particular attention in the teaching on the representation of falling light, as well as how to summarise complexity in broad strokes. The tutor will demonstrate each stage of the process and there will be one-to-one tuition at other times during the course.

This course is recommended for intermediate and advanced students. Fresh flowers will be provided for each day’s painting, and it’s envisioned that at least four paintings and one drawing will be made by each painter.


 £170                                                                                                 Colman Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4 7HA

Alex Fowler NEAC Painting the Landscape In Oils
21st,22nd,23rd August 2020  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.
