A weekend of landscape painting

I had a busy but super fun weekend in Tomatin and Boat of Garten teaching some lovely people how to paint misty landscapes.

Luckily the weather was bright enough for a spot of outdoor painting too.

We used acrylics to build up the different layers of the scene – from sky to mountain to trees to loch – then picked up the airbrush to create clouds and mist and add to a sense of depth, or atmospheric perspective, if you want the arty word.

Everyone did really well. It was great to see people having fun while learning a new technique. I loved seeing the results. All the finished paintings looked brilliant.

Many thanks to Art in Strathdearn and the 1896 Gallery in Boat of Garten for asking me along. And best of luck to the latter, which is now open again and looking great after a wee refurbishment. And finally thanks to James Gordon at the 1896 Gallery for taking photos on Sunday.

Landscapes are a skoosh

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to paint a landscape, now is your chance.

As part of the grand re-opening of the 1896 Gallery in Boat of Garten. I’ll be teaching a wee workshop there at the end of March.

‘Landscapes are a skoosh’ will cover basic acrylic techniques to build up the layers of a scene in order to create a beautiful painting. I’ll also show you how to use an airbrush and get you spraying paint on the canvas in no time.

It’s a one day session on March 31 – that’s all the time you’ll need. The workshop costs £75 and includes materials, a light lunch and refreshments. But spaces are limited, so booking is essential. Contact info@1896gallery.com to reserve your space.

Chameleons

I’ve had so much fun drawing pictures for these ones…..Mugs, beer steins, bottles and fancy stainless steel travel mugs, all with sneaky wee chameleons hunting beasties on the other side of them. These new products are available in James Gordon’s 1896 gallery in Boat of Garten.
