Autumn Colours in Mixed Media'  with Frances Winder 

An exciting workshop with this popular tutor, well known for her landscapes and skill at depicting beautiful reflections on water.

Frances will be dealing with colour theories, adjacent and opposite colour designs, and the drama of tonal changes. Light and shade emphasis and how to add that wow factor to your work. Demonstrating in watercolour techniques, the flow and excitement of wet in wet methods, and in acrylic paint the value of texture and richness of overlaying colour. The techniques can be reversed and used to add intensity and drama to each medium.

For beginners I advise a simple range of gouache paints, designers white, primary red, yellow, ultramarine, black, burnt umber and primary blue. Round brushes, small medium and large, a plastic palette. Luxury colours would be green gold, and orange.

Good watercolour paper is fine for acrylic, watercolour, and gouache paints.

This class is suitable for every standard of student from beginner to experienced student.  I try to cover or develop what I think will help your individual aims or expertise in this work

About the Artist  Now living in Kendal, Cumbria, I work from home and in association with Green Door Studio artists. I still do some freelance work but now concentrate primarily on my own work. I am very interested in exploring the printing process, especially collagraphs, and also in ceramics and machine embroidery.

My main fields include painting  – watercolour, gouache and oil pastel, acrylic – they all fascinate me and draw me into the exploration of new approaches and techniques. I love the wilderness areas, walking and gardening. Colour and light are important to me and provide the stimulus for many of my recent paintings. I am also drawn increasingly to more abstract expression of the landscapes and forms which have always attracted me.
