Painting en Plein Air with Tom Benjamin
8th-15th May 2021


About the Workshop

Suitable for oils and acrylics, this course will focus on painting outside, capturing the freshness and vitality of the landscape. You will learn to structure a painting with a sense of light, form, space and atmosphere. Responding to what you see and improvising can produce surprising and exciting results. There will also be time to develop work further in the studio, and Tom will sometimes paint alongside the group in order to demonstrate ideas and techniques. The emphasis of the tuition is on helping each student to develop good observational and technical skills and through that find their own approach.
