This weekend workshop is suitable for artists of all abilities – from beginners to advanced –
It’s for anyone who wishes to take a fresh look at their painting practice.
Brenda will focus on some basic principles such as composition, colour mixing, and the whole process of developing a painting from start to finish.
There will be demonstration and instruction in palette knife techniques. This will be a relaxing and enjoyable weekend to focus on your art with individual advice and support.
