9th -11th August: Thoughtful Composition, Art Safari, Woodbridge

  • Art Safari The Harbourmasters Office Ferry Quay Woodbridge Suffolk IP12 1BW (map)

A three-day Art Safari painting course emphasing the importance of composing your image before and during the painting process.

In particular thinking about matching colour and tonal values while keeping structure and a sense of fun and freedom within your paintwork. Paint in oil, acrylic or watercolour for this eye-opening course.

"By focussing solely on the colours for a few minutes before you begin, you can allow yourself to concentrate on capturing the sense of light and the essence of the day through the temperature and balance of the colours. It can be a very satisfying process and is often one of my favourite stages in making a painting," says Vicki. "Matching the colours before you paint on location has another great benefit for which I have often been grateful; if the weather suddenly changes, or the boat you are painting sails away, you already have all the information you need to complete a painting in your studio!"

Come to the Art Safari Studio to paint the Suffolk summer with Vicki and to put these lessons into practice. Our evenings are social and make the most of the cultural activity of Suffolk.

Cost: £285 including lunches and refreshments
