Seascape painting in blues and oranges by Catherine Hamilton

For those who might have missed the last workshop in August this second one will continue to look at some of the practices Turner used to explore the principles of painting and finding light.

This course brings together some innovative techniques in acrylic, including creating atmospheric effects and shimmering light and working through various tones to create distance and drama.

You will work on smaller sketches and then continue to create a larger composition using a varied palette of colours to bring together a finished seascape painting.
