Learn to paint street scenes in acrylics full of movement and life with a strong emphasis on the contrast of light.

This course will involve a mixture of structured exercises, demonstrations and plenty of guided tuition for students encouraging you to get a big brush out and look at finding the balance between accuracy and letting loose. You will look at painting with and against the light to build the atmosphere within this style of painting.

Acrylic paints in a range of colours.

Brushes in a range of sizes suitable for acrylic painting.

2 x canvas or similar painting surfaces in a size of your choice. 

There will be a large selection of photographic references for you to choose from but participants are also encouraged to bring along their own preferred reference images.

For those who are trying acrylics for the first time paints, brushes and canvas paper will be available for an additional £10 material fee, payable to the tutor at the start of the course.
