'Painting Still Life & Learn 'Texture' in Oils and Acrylics with Max Hale

SATURDAY 11TH JANUARY 2020

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

Studio One - All Abilities Welcome.

Still Life painting with a focus on textures.

Experienced tutor, Max Hale, will tutor you through some simple methods of capturing the many textures within a still life. Texture in a painting can be a daunting prospect, but it’s easier than you think. In this one day workshop we will be looking at how we capture glass, chrome, water, linen, towelling, cotton, wood, basket weave and other similar textures. In many ways, texture is a way of learning brush strokes and how simple strokes or scrapes, scumbles or placements can bring results you may not have believed!

This workshop is suitable for beginners and students with some previous painting experience. It crosses many boundaries as it is not often taught in a way that makes it easy to understand.

Attic Studio - Some basic oil painting experience required

Learn how to paint incredible skies with guidance from new tutor, Georgina Potter.

We are delighted that Georgina Potter will be teaching our students how to successfully depict the sky in landscape using oils. This workshop is best suited for those who have previously used oil paints and both amateur and professional painters are very welcome.

Georgie will start the day with a demonstration, working from photographs. She is using Cranfield Artist oils, but you can bring or purchase whichever oil paints you favour. This workshop will teach you the basics for plein air painting, working at speed with a loose style.

    You will learn about the following skills on this workshop:
  • How the sky affects the landscape below – getting the right tonal values
  • Comparing warm and cold colours in a landscape
  • Working out composition
  • Choosing a colour scheme and palette
  • Working in a loose manner from thin to thick paint with big brushes
  • Assessing your own work
  • Final touches

    Recommended materials list:
  • Oil Paints
    • Georgie recommends Cranfield oil paints in either student or professional artist quality. This is her ‘go-to’ basic oil painting palette. Such as Cranfield Artist Oil Colours 40ml Professional range.
    • Titanium White – bring two small tubes or a larger one, you will use a lot! Cadmium Yellow genuine, Cadmium lemon yellow, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine Blue, Kings Blue deep, Pthalo Turquoise, Raw Sienna, Lamp Black. Additional colours; Indian Yellow, Unbleached Titanium, Cadmium Orange.
  • Brushes - Bring a selection of brushes, in particular brushes over 1” wide and up to 2” wide. We have a large selection in the shop.
  • Painting Medium - Georgie uses a 50/50 mix of linseed oil and Cranfield Non Aromatic thinner. We also stock Spectrum Non-aromatic Thinner.
  • Brush Cleaner – Turps, white spirit or Zest It
  • Canvas Boards - A selection of canvas boards or primed MDF boards 30cm x 40cm. We can recommend a pre-stretched Loxley canvas costing £9.34 – we have plenty of stock at Pegasus Art. Georgie suggests keeping the cost of your canvas to a minimum so that you don’t mind making mistakes.

About Georgina: After winning the Diana Brooks Award, Georgie was encouraged to focus painting full time. In 2011 she moved to Wiltshire and was inspired by the changing palette of the countryside. “I work fast and instinctively in oils, mostly from life or as a reaction to the landscape around me onto small canvas boards and then I often work these up into bigger paintings in my studios. I try to make every brush stroke matter so that I can be economical with detail, and I frequently rub areas out and start again.” georginapotter.com

'Botanical Painting - Spring Flowers in Watercolour' with Karen Green

SATURDAY 21ST MARCH 2020

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

Studio One. All Abilities Welcome

Working from a selection of Spring flowers, you will learn how to compose, draw from observation and paint in detail, using watercolour, to create a finished botanical painting reflecting an understanding of the subject whilst capturing the beauty of these seasonal plants.

With Karen’s experience as a botanical artist you will be guided, with one to one support and demonstrations, to mix colours carefully to match what you see, explore light and shadows and learn a little flower botany! During the session you will familiarise yourself with the materials and tools needed for botanical art and the techniques used, slowly building up layers of paint to create luminosity and depth.

About Karen:Karen has been working as a professional artist for nearly ten years and has taught botanical art workshops locally since 2016. Receiving a First Class honours degree at The Arts Institute of Bournemouth, she went on to work as a primary school teacher for several years before embarking on a full time career as a fine artist. She now exhibits her work regularly in shared and solo shows. She refers to herself as a botanical artist rather than an illustrator as, although she paints with intricate detail, retaining the technical accuracy of the plant, her paintings place more emphasis on the aesthetics and artistry.

'Rembrandt Portraits' a Portraiture Workshop in Oils with Max Hale

SATURDAY 28TH MARCH 2020

10.00am - 4.00pm

£70

Studio One, All Welcome

Kindly Sponsored by Royal Talens

To celebrate 350 years since the death of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, the famous Dutch paint manufacturer, Royal Talens, is hosting ‘The Year of Rembrandt.’ Max Hale is a UK ambassador for the brand and is using the great painter as the inspiration for this portrait workshop. Royal Talens have been making Rembrandt oil and watercolours since 1899.

Rembrandt is generally considered one of the greatest artists in history and certainly the most important in Holland. Best known for ‘The Night Watch’, his portraits are recognised for their realism and lack of vanity which was unusual at that time. He painted vigorously and his one hundred or so self portraits provide a rich visual diary of his life and times over a span of forty years. In his etchings, he explores the strangest facial expressions and twisted features - in his oils, we can trace his progression from a dapper, portrait painter in the 1630’s to ageing artist in his troubled but powerful portraits. He is considered to be the forerunner in expressing himself autobiographically through portraiture, painting his every line and wrinkle. It is an interesting fact that his portraits got bigger over time, following the advent of larger panes of mirrored glass used for his self portraits!

Working from a life model, Max will teach you how to paint using the (almost original) limited palette of the great painter. Royal Talens have kindly sponsored the workshop with free samples, allowing you to try Rembrandt oil colours for yourself. By the end of the workshop, you will have a near completed portrait, which you can continue to work from at home. You will find it fascinating to explore the techniques favoured by Rembrandt.

Read our fascinating blog about Rembrandt’s self portraiture and 17th century colour palette here.

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 regionally and in London and has a work on show at the Rijks Museum as part of The Year of Rembrandt. His passion to tutor and motivate others is obvious and he teaches in all mediums. www.maxhaleart.co.uk

'Van Gogh Sunflowers & Irises' with Sarah Wimperis

SATURDAY 25TH APRIL 2020

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

All abilities. Mixed media – watercolour, water mixable oils or acrylic.

Attic Studios, Pegasus Art

How much do you know about Van Gogh’s Iris paintings?

We are all familiar with Van Gogh’s sunflowers, but much less is known about his series of iris paintings. They were painted in the hospital garden at Saint Paul-de-Mausole asylum near Provence in 1890, the year before he died. Experts believe these paintings were simply studies rather than finished works and they are admired for their vivid colour and lightness.

If you love flowers and the work of Vincent Van Gogh then you will love this workshop! Indulge in a day of art appreciation and painting as you discuss the sunflower and iris paintings, the palette and techniques he used. Work began on his sunflower paintings in 1888, the happiest year of his life in the baking sunshine of Arles in the South of France. In a letter he wrote to his brother Theo, he describes his process, ‘I can only work in the early morning as the flowers wilt quickly and it’s a matter of doing the whole thing in one go.’

You will be working from a sunflower and iris still life and from Van Gogh images. Sarah will help you step by step and by the end of the day you’ll have a finished painting. Feel free to paint in whatever medium you prefer – oils, water based oils, acrylics or watercolour. You can always buy extra products in the shop on the day.

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.

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!

'Mixing Colours From the Primaries' with Vicki Norman.

SATURDAY 5TH DECEMBER 2020

10.00am - 3.00pm

£60

Intermediates

Talented painter and Michael Harding Ambassador tutors an invaluable colour mixing workshop.

In this workshop we’ll take a look at colour theory and learn to create many variations in colour from a limited number of pigments. In this way we can create more harmonious and sophisticated palettes for our paintings from a smaller number of colours. Simple exercises will build our skills and help to put theory into practice as we create useful scales and small colour studies.

Please wear old clothes and bring any oil painting brushes you have. A flat, non-absorbent palette will be helpful and you will need two sheets of A3 size oil painting paper or suitably primed canvas boards/canvases. Oil paper will be available to purchase at the workshop by the sheet. All art materials are available in our shop with a 5% discount.

Small sample tubes of Michael Harding oil paints will be provided.

About Vicki: I’m a painter and a tutor, for me, these roles are inseparable, because teaching allows me to share my love of paint and colour. The practice of teaching has taught me that making art is really good for us! My big dream is to run painting trips to developing countries. In 2006 I managed a voluntary project in Lusaka, Zambia, teaching tie-dye and batik to tailoring students who had been widowed through HIV/AIDS. I also worked with homeless youths using recycled paper-making to generate income. It was great to use creative skills to help people change their lives for the better and I really want to do more of this work. At present I deliver painting workshops and classes around the UK and give weekly lessons to an inspiring ‘mouth painter’ with cerebral palsy who works from her wheelchair.

Over 14 years, I have delivered courses in Specialist Arts Centres, Colleges, Adult Special Needs Care, Mental Health Facilities and established a productive Art Department within a Women's Prison. Frequently, I work with adults who struggle with mental illness. The sense of fulfilment and cultural contribution I feel through this work is different from anything I can experience through the act of painting alone.

Tickets £20

Illustrated Talk & Book Signing - Attic Studios

We are delighted that Kassia St Clair, author of top-ten bestseller The Secret Lives of Colour is coming to Pegasus Art to give an illustrated talk. You may have heard snippets on Radio 4 when it was Book of the Week, you may have seen it’s colourful book cover in Waterstones – and now is your chance to delight in the hidden history of seventy five pigments, revealing fascinating historical and cultural facts that will bowl you over.

Kassia St Clair - headshot Kassia St Clair - The Secret Life of Colour Book with dotty cover Kassia St Clair - The Secret Life of Colour Book with striped cover Kassia St Clair - page of book about reds Kassia St Clair - page of book about blues Kassia St Clair - page of book about greens

What started as a column for Elle Decoration has become a bestselling book, alongside The Golden Thread telling the fascinating history of fabric. Every page is packed with irresistible facts and anecdotes from Turner’s deadly green, Van Gogh and ‘falling hard’ for chrome yellow, ultramarine that was more valuable than gold to our very own Stroud Scarlet, ‘Oliver Cromwell specified that officer’s coats should be dyed scarlet in Gloucestershire using a newly discovered recipe.’

Kassia will focus on the cultural history of five colours. From the controversy surrounding the world’s blackest black to the origins of a blue that inspired Yves Klein. Explore the deadly power of white, the political underpinnings of a special shade of orange and, last but not least, decided whether it’s time we all began to think pink.

About Kassia: Kassia is a freelance journalist and author. She graduated with a first-class honours degree in history and went on to complete a master’s degree at Oxford. She has written for The Economist, House & Garden, Quartz and the New Statesman. She has had column in Elle Decoration since 2013 and was assistant books and arts editor for The Economist.

She has given talks at Dallas Museum of Art, Tate Liverpool, the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery, as well as events at Hay and Bath Festivals, Soho House and Christie’s.

“Even Farrow & Ball don’t know as much about colour as Kassia St Clair,” TLS

“Extraordinarily full and interesting. The real joy of the book lies in the main chapters, where almost every page throws up an unexpected detail and insight. An ideal crib and valuable resource for the design-conscioius and students alike.” Times Literary Supplement
