My12 day colour and composition courseis back by popular demand, followed by Exressive painting with mixed media.If you would like to do both, there is a small reduction and no additional charge for staying at the art centre on the three rest days between.

Bella’s iPad Colour Studies


Here you see examples of quick colour studies make on the iPad, some from direct observation and some playful doodles to explore colour palettes and composition. They are all done in about 30 minutes or less. Often these will be used with other drawn studies as preparation for a larger painting.
