Painting a Blossom

This event takes place at Bankfield Museum

Join watercolour artist Jane Austin for a full-day workshop painting the blossom in nature. Learn how to build background colour and tones with transparent layers of random marks, alternating from the warm and cool side of the colour wheel to create form, painting positive shapes, and creating soft highlights.

Jane Austin has been a professional artist for 25 years. Her work has been exhibited nationally and locally, with many solo exhibitions at All Souls' Church. Her work can be seen currently at Bankfield Museum, Shibden Hall, the Halifax Minster, Dean Clough and the Piece Hall.

Bring along your own paint, paper, brushes and other equipment that you have. If you wish though supplies will be available for those without, as well as source material. The artist uses Bockingford NOT 250lbs 535gsm and Windsor & Newton Cotman paints.

If you have any questions regarding equipment etc you can contact Jane on 01422 353308 or janewatercolour@aol.com.
