EN PLEIN AIR PAINTING IN ACRYLICS AND WATERCOLOURS With Stephen Yates , Sculpture by the Lakes, Sunday, 28. July 2019

This En Plein Air workshop will give you a step-by-step approach to achieving a successful day painting outdoors, using the inspiring landscape in and around Sculpture by the Lakes. Just because a scene is beautiful or interesting doesn’t necessarily mean it will translate well into a painting, and the course will guide you through the importance of site selection, as well as how to sketch out a compositional thumbnail. You will then move on to under-painting or blocking-in, with tips on paint handling, colour mixing and finally application of fully-loaded pigment to the canvas. 

Stephen Yates has been painting outdoors for more than 25 years as part of a successful 40 year teaching career in Art, Design and Technology across all sectors of education. A resident of West Dorset for over 30 years, Stephen has exhibited extensively throughout the UK including London, the Slade Arts Centre in Gillingham and both Shaftesbury and Bridport Arts Centres,as well as the hugely popular biennial Dorset Art Weeks Open Studio events. In 2017 he was invited as Artist in Residence with Bega Regional Arts, New South Wales, to create a series of En Plein Air painting events along the Sapphire Coast.     

Lunch, tea and coffee is included for all students, please advise regarding dietary requirements when booking or on the booking form.
