27th July Cottages & Countryside with Max Hale
Cottages & Countryside with Max Hale
Oil, acrylic, watercolour or pastel
Saturday 27th July 2019
10am – 4pm
The aim of this one day workshop is to explore our heritage and countryside with it’s myriad of beautiful and picturesque cottages, houses and gardens. Some of the most amazing yet simple scenes involve traditional, old or handsome buildings within ‘perfect’ or beautiful scenery. It doesn’t matter if we don’t have references that match our ideas, the artist will concoct or develop these within the day.
Sketching out ideas and using perhaps more than one reference, the artist will build a visual image to paint. You will need to balance out all the elements of the scene – fields, gardens and property – it will be a morning of planning and structuring. Choose your preferred medium and develop your composition with the aim of reflecting the character of the scene. Max will teach you planning, developing ideas using sketches, value studies, colour mixing and one to one tuition to aid each student.
This is an ‘open medium’ session which relies on the artist to work with a medium that they feel comfortable with. The focus of the workshop is less about the practicalities of the medium itself, and more about developing the scene, mood and atmosphere to build a credible painting. Suitable for all levels of artist except total beginners – choose from oil, acrylic, watercolour or pastel. You will be painting two pieces during the workshop.
Max has been teaching at Pegasus Art for four years and has built up a popular following of students. He attended Harrow School of Art where he studied Fine Art and was tutored by Ken Howard OBE RA. He became an apprentice illustrator in a London studio but found his way back to fine art, his true passion. He has been teaching for over twenty five years, whilst exhibiting and painting throughout. He writes for The Artist magazine, among others, and is an Ambassador for Royal Talens. He has had paintings exhibited in most areas of the country and many in London his passion to tutor and motivate others is obvious and works in all mediums. www.maxhaleart.co.uk
