'Painting Colours' 1-day workshop with Paul Newland NEAC RWS

The object of this workshop is to think about ways of imaging the colours we see around us using selection, judgement and imagination. The day will begin with simple still life set ups, then continue, weather permitting, with work outside by the river. Should the weather be unsuitable, work will continue using the Heatherley's studio spaces. It is hoped you will be able to make several images, so the works produced will be smallish. The day will conclude with a plenary session.

About your tutor: Paul Newland NEAC RWS makes paintings which essentially combine memory with imagination and observation. His works often evolve over a long period of time in an on off sort of way. More recently he has begun to paint outside in oil paint where chance and accident have become part of his working process. Paul is also a member of the Royal Watercolour Society and has exhibited widely, he has won many awards including The Discerning Eye Purchase Prize in 2014.

Whatever medium you prefer, but opaque paints [gouache, oil, or acrylic] would be most suitable for the day. Pastels could also be used. Try to include the primary colours [red yellow and blue] and black and white. Venetian Red and Yellow Ochre would also be useful. You will also need some papers for collage and a glue stick.

If using paper some gumstrip for stretching is advisable, otherwise whatever boards or canvas you prefer to use. Brushes should be in a range of sizes with at least one large one for sloshing it on.

There is a materials shop on site if required.

There are tea and coffee making facilities on site and cafes nearby - but you might want to bring a packed lunch.
