.16th Nov Sunlight Seascapes in Acrylics with David Johnson
Sunlight Seascapes in acrylics with David ‘DJ’ Johnson
Saturday 16th November
10am – 4pm
A beginners or refreshers course
‘DJ’ is a talented artist (shortlisted for Artist & Illustrator Artist of the Year 2016) and adventurer with a passion for the sea and mountains. This workshop will be taught through a series of demonstrations and one to one tuition, showing you a variety of techniques and methods for applying paint, including alternatives to brushes. You will study and play with colour, light and textures, allowing for individual creative expression.
The workshop involves exploring the reflections and highlights of sunlight in the sea, as well as the textures you find in the water and foam. David teaches a variety of techniques using a palette knife and a rigger brush to achieve a wide range of textures and patterns which emulate the sunlight reflections you find in seascapes. We also use the palette knife and fingers to create cloud effects, and normal brushes to lay down the foundations of the painting. These are techniques that DJ has been exploring and developing in acrylics for a few years now. If students prefer to use oils, this is also possible – please let us know!
DJ has developed his style through many years working in professional fine art studios – designing and producing artwork for commercial spaces, public areas and private estates around the world. He paints every day and teaches on a regular basis – he has so much energy and enthusiasm! He was shortlisted for Artists & Illustrators Artist of the Year in 2013, 2016 and 2017. His workshops are great for building confidence, tackling unusual subjects and picking up techniques and tips. www.artbydj.co.uk

- Brush cleaner and tissue / rags and a jam jar (with lid) for cleaning your brushes in
- Canvas or canvas board 10” x 12” is a good size
