Skill Level - Beginner

  This week you will be painting a still life from an arrangement of objects of your choice, but it will be on a basecoat of one flat colour. When painting Steve will show you how if you allow the base colour to show through in places it will give your painting an overall unity.

You will need to prepare a canvas board before this session by painting it in one flat colour.


You can either sit back and watch the demonstration or craft-along. If you do intend to paint-along, please ensure you have all of your materials ready to go.

Instructions and Zoom log in details will be included at the bottom of your confirmation email after you have registered.
