Still Life and Flower Painting: Weekend Course November

About Still Life and Flower Painting: Weekend Course November

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 Weekend Workshop is the final block 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. Go here for more information on the full course.

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.

2 & 3 November - Still Life/Flowers & Fruit: creating a finished still life composition

This Weekend Workshop takes place over 2 consecutive days giving you the chance to really develop your work with Suzanne's assistance to guide you through the process.

You will begin by considering the art of composition. Our inspiration, or starting point, may be: the way that light falls and touches an object; the drama created by shadows; or a colour combination that excites us.

Before starting on your still life, Suzanne will talk you through the main points to consider, and share examples of still lifes from some of the masters.

You will then work together in groups to arrange your still life before going onto creating thumbnail sketches to work out your individual compositions. You will then draw your still life onto your canvas, and create tonal washes to fill the canvas. From here, you will start to build up your paint while considering shape and form, colour and tone. Over the period of the two day workshop, Suzanne will provide you with hands-on help and guidance to enable you to complete a still life composition on canvas.

This workshop will also benefit people with some experience of painting who want to refresh their skills, or learn more about creating a still life and developing their style.

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.
