25th May 2019 Painting Tree Landscapes with Fiona McIntyre MA
Painting Tree Landscapes, Mixed media – ink, acrylic and collage with Fiona McIntyre MA
Saturday 25th May – Attic Studios at Pegasus Art
£60 All abilities welcome
Fiona has been drawing and painting trees and landscapes for the last 30 years. As a member of the contemporary art movement The Arborealists she is uniquely qualified to bring her skills, knowledge and passion for nature to this unique course. She has been known to spend day upon day sketching one single tree, measuring and observing every tiny detail. She will share her passion for natural forms and tree landscapes with her wonderful still life made up of giant tree roots, suspended branches and other natural objects. You can explore a range of media – ink, acrylics, liquid graphite, charcoal, pencil and collage. Fiona sometimes uses the green dye from natural moss in her paintings! Experiment and have fun.
The course will involve spending a day in our newly refurbished Attic Studio developing paintings and collage on large sheets of watercolour paper, working from previous sketchbook material. We will NOT be working from photographs, so it is important that sketches and drawings are made outdoors in advance of the course. “I teach students in such a way that their minds are opened to new possibilities of 'seeing'. Once students are freed from unhelpful habits I encourage self-expression through experimentation of media and techniques.”
There will also be the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Fiona’s book, ‘A Tree Within’ written with co-author Alan Wilkinson for £25. For more information:
Fiona McIntyre studied at Edinburgh College of Art, followed by Malmö and an M.A from Winchester. She is a figurative/landscape painter and member of the Arborealists with work represented in various public, corporate and private collections in the UK and Scandinavia. She is currently exhibiting in France at Dortoir des Moines de Saint-Benoit, Poitiers and in a major exhibition at Southampton City Art Gallery in - 'Capture the Castle, Turner to Le Brun'. She is co-author with Dr Alan Wilkinson of "Fiona McIntyre: A Tree Within", published 2016 (Sansom & Co) and recently gave an illustrated talk on her art for a book signing event at Waterstones, Gower Street.
