Landscape Painting with Oils & Palette Knife

Saturday 25th January 2020

 10.00am – 4.00pm

Course Fee – £120 including a homemade lunch

Rupert Aker works in oils with palette knife, and exhibited some of his bold and gestural landscape paintings in our autumn exhibition. This workshop is your opportunity to see how he does it and give it a go yourself! Rupert will take you through the process of painting directly from the landscape, using oil paints quickly to capture the colours and light. No painting experience is needed just a willingness to give it a go and put paint to canvas.  A list of materials will be emailed a month before the workshop.
Rupert is a Cotswold based artist based in Painswick, Gloucestershire. He says “I walk the valleys and hills, drawing my inspiration from the woods, meadows and hedgerows, painting ‘en plain air’ when possible. My aim is to capture the effects of the light on the land through the medium of oil paint with a palette knife.” “I am a self-taught artist with my love and understanding of the countryside underpinned by reading land management at the Royal Agricultural University, and throughout my life living and working alongside farmers and foresters.”
