Painting the winter landscape in oils
Thursday March 2nd 2023 Micklems Farm Creative Workshops, Berkshire
The British landscape in winter offers unique opportunities to capture the bright, clear skies, subtle colours of fields and beautiful tracery of hedgerows and trees. Low sunlight, especially in the early morning and afternoon, provides a contrast to all the cool colours, with flashes of warmth created as it hits tree branches and grasses.
As an alternative to shivering in a field to experience all this inspiration, why not join me in a warm studio to explore different ways of depicting the challenges of the glorious winter landscape?
In 2021 I was lucky enough to be selected to take part in one of my favourite TV shows, Sky Landscape Artist of the Year. It was a last minute application - I've always thought it would be fun if you were chosen to be one of the 'wild card' artists, who look as though they are having such a good time (even though it does always seem to be raining).
It was quite an experience and although I had a bad case of imposter syndrome, I really enjoyed the whole process; the production team were so friendly and bent over backwards to make the contestants' experience as positive as they could.
It was amazing to reach the final three.
