Paint the vines
An oil painting Masterclass at Woodchester Valley Vineyard, Stonehouse
Monday 21st & Tuesday 22nd September 2020
with Lucy Kent
10am – 4pm each day
All abilities welcome – even beginners
Sponsored by Michael Harding paints
Lucy Kent is a seasoned landscape painter with a passion for the great outdoors, painting in all weathers, all over the world. She has a strong focus on the visceral quality of the paint itself, often creating thick impasto style work. She will delight in showing you how to mix a landscape colour palette, how to plan your composition and execute an en plein air painting.
Lucy will begin with a demo and will then help you start your own paintings, giving you step by step advice on how to tint your canvas, options for your ground, types of paints, tips and tricks and more! You will be free to watch Lucy paint throughout the day alongside you, and she will give regular positive critiques of your painting and help whenever needed.
This masterclass will have a strong focus on light and colour and will give you confidence to be loose and expressive with your brush and/or palette knife. If the weather is inclement, the group will continue to work outdoors in a sturdy gazebo. You will come away with one or two finished landscapes to be proud of!

Lucy is a contemporary landscape artist painting in oil, predominantly en plein-air, taking her paints wherever she travels. She trained at Charles H Cecil Studios in Florence and has exhibited with The Royal Society of British Artists and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters, among others, at The Mall Galleries, London. Originally trained in portraiture, the last five years have seen her focus on landscape painting. Her work hangs in both private and commercial collections in the UK and abroad ~ she has had two sell out shows to date.
Lucy views her work like a visual diary, intimately recording her experiences and the beauty in the world around her. A palette knife is used to build the layers and tell the story of the scene unfolding, which results in an energetic and vibrant response to the subject matter. She is particularly inspired by dramatic light and will often re-visit the same spot a few times at different times of day and year, drawing inspiration from the Impressionist movement in modern day.

Woodchester Valley Vineyard
Woodchester Valley Vineyard has three sites in Gloucestershire ~ Amberley, Woodchester and Stonehouse covering forty five acres with a total of 60,000 vines. For this painting masterclass, we will be based in Stonehouse, a twenty minute drive from Pegasus Art Shop. We hope there are still green vines in September and the weather will be warm!
We will have use of the farm office – a basic facility with a bathroom where you can store your bags and equipment. There will be a large, sturdy gazebo if the weather is inclement, where we can continue painting from photographs. Please bring your own packed lunch for a midday break when we can enjoy a small taste of the wine. Please bring warm clothing and comfortable footwear. There is tea and coffee available on the day.
