Workshop Details

Learn how to create a Moorland painting with lots of superb colour using contemporary mixed media techniques with international award winning Yorkshire Artist Robert Dutton (UK Canson Ambassador and regular contributor to 'The Artist' magazine)

This workshop will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn how to combine water media and acrylic inks with soft pastels to create rich 'free flowing' and impressionistic paintings full of colour, atmosphere and light by both drawing and painting at the same time!

Using big brush techniques and a bold approach, this exciting workshop will teach you how to control large washes of colour in multiple layers of sumptuous colour whilst at the same time enjoying creative freedon with all the marks you create.

With regular demonstrations, one to one and group tuition throughout the day you will learn lots of different contemporary art techniques to help you really develop as artists
