Painting the Landscape in Oil with Richard Pikesley (intermediate/advanced)
Thursday 19th May
Two course homemade lunch
Course fee: £95.00
This one-day workshop led by Richard Pikesley – President of the New English Art Club, will explore the art of painting from nature outdoors. Working from the far reaching views around the barn, students will learn methods of capturing natural light and how to mix colours tonally, increasing their confidence in experimenting with oils beyond the studio.
Born in 1951, Richard started his artistic career at the Harrow School of Art before going to study at the City of Canterbury College of Art in 1970 for three years. Within a year of leaving, he was elected to the New English Art Club. In 2013 he was elected as President of the N.E.A.C. Richards art education valued both tradition and drawing, and instilled in him a love for landscape and the effects of light and weather. When he paints, Richard aims to capture the spirit of the place, not just to extol its beauty.
