About Still Life and Flower Painting Course: Block 3

Monday 21st and 28th October

Artist Suzanne Kemplay graduated in Painting and Drawing from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee. She works from her studio in Edinburgh, and has exhibited at a number of Scottish Galleries. Suzanne is predominantly known for her still life work and photorealist flower paintings.

This is Block 3 of Suzanne's 28 hour painting course. The course is designed to encourage, and give confidence to, beginners, while also helping those who want to develop their painting skills further.

The course is available to book as a complete course (28 hours), as individual 2-week blocks (5 hours), plus as a weekend course (13 hours) to suit different levels, skills and interests. A discount is available when booking all 3 blocks together.

21 October - Still Life: lighting, shape & form

Starting with a simple still life set up of flowers and a piece of fruit, Suzanne will guide you through the impact of light and shade and how important they are to your composition. A few objects placed together can create a wealth of possibilities to explore.

You will begin with a number of thumbnail sketches, and using a viewfinder you will find your own composition. Working on acrylic paper, you will then be taken through the stages of creating a painting paying attention to colour, light and shade.

28 October - Still Life: Composition

The focus this week will be on painting fruit and drapes; using folds in the drapes to describe the form and volume, while exploring the negative shapes between the fruit and drapes. Through considering composition, we look at how arrangements can be set up, and elements we should look out for when positioning objects. You will start with a number of thumbnail sketches, and using a viewfinder you will find your own composition. Working on acrylic paper you will be taken through the stages of painting a simple still life with fruit and drapes.

Class sizes are kept small so that Suzanne can give you the support you need to get the most from the course.

What to bring:

Please bring brushes and a paint palette with you. If you don't have your own, we can supply these initially and recommend what to buy for future classes. All other materials are provided, and refreshments are also included.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Still Life and Flower Painting Course: Block 3 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
