Marlborough College, Wiltshire

I am delighted to be running two oil classes this year. For each course brushes, oil paints and basic equipment are included. You need only bring along your own canvases or boards to the classes. Both courses are for mixed ability groups where I aim to ensure everyone has the support they need to progress. To give you some idea of what to expect, here is a brief summary of each course together with a downloadable course information sheet. Cost for each course is £425.00 per person, plus accommodation if required. Accommodation costs vary depending on the type of room chosen. To request a brochure, please telephone Marlborough College directly on tel:01672 892388. Visit www.summerschool.co.uk to book your place.

17th to 21st July: Oils, Fast & Loose - course full


Learn to paint “alla prima” and loosen up!  Each painting is completed in one session, entirely wet in wet in around 3 hours. In the studio learn specific techniques to help you; how to layer paint wet on wet, colour mixing, blending and impasto brushwork. Painting from still life arrangements, photographs and sketches. Some outdoor painting, weather permitting.

By the end of the course, I hope you will have the confidence and skill to choose a suitable subject; know how to start and when to stop. DOWNLOAD COURSE INFO

24th to 28th July: Oils, at the Seaside


Ever wanted to paint seascapes? This studio-based course shows you how. Structured lessons teach you to paint breaking waves, mix realistic colours for sea, sand and cliffs as well as how to include figures, beach huts, windbreaks and all the life of the beach in your paintings.  The week is full of demonstrations to inspire you and plenty of one to one help where appropriate. Oil paints, brushes and basic equipment are included on this course, but please bring along your own canvases. DOWNLOAD COURSE INFO
