Join local artist and educator Rachel Davis for a gentle introduction into painting a vibrant beachscape. We will explore colour and surface texture possibilities before painting our own acrylic scenes of the beautiful Majorcan coastline.

  • Describe how our colour choices affect atmosphere and mood within a scene
  • Identify ways of adding surface texture using a variety of different texture mediums
  • Use a variety of different mark making tools to add areas of surface texture
  • Apply the principles of complementary colour theory to striking visual effect
  • Create a vibrant acrylic paint sketch series culminating in a final piece
  • Demonstrate the ability to pull together colour theory, tonal value principles, a wider understanding of mark making and its impact on our paintings
