I will be teaching a plein air oil painting workshop at Assington Mill in Suffolk on Saturday 17th September 2016. Based at a 17th century watermill in 70 acres of private nature reserve, it would be hard to find a more perfect location to hone your outdoor oil painting skills.
The one day course on Saturday 17th September 2016 will cover the follow topics.
- Setting up outside
- Working methods and techniques
- Short cuts
- Finishing paintings on location
- Getting your wet oil paintings home again
All for just £95 with the added bonus of delicious home-made lunch in the farmhouse kitchen, biscuits and cakes throughout the day.
For those already familiar with outdoor painting this is a great opportunity to paint at this fabulous location and for those a little nervous of working in public this secluded landscape is perfect. We will have the freedom of this 70-acre private nature reserve with stunning views.

Craft of the Landscape Painter
If you want to be able to paint the world around you, to get outside and capture the effect of light on the landscape without resorting to copying photographs, then this one day workshop is for you.
Working close by the mill and in the surrounding private nature reserve we will paint a series of landscapes by direct observation. This course is aimed at oil painters of all levels although you are welcome to use acrylics if you prefer.
For those nervous of working out in the open the secluded location is ideal, at the end of a long track down into one of Suffolk’s beautiful ‘hidden valleys’ between Constable’s Stour Valley and Gainsborough’s home town.
All with the added bonus of home-made lunch, biscuits and cakes throughout the day.
September 2013, 10am – 5pm with the option of staying on in the evening
Assington Mill, Bures Road, Assington, Suffolk, CO10 5LZ
