'Dynamic Floral & Landscape Abstracts in Ink and Watercolour' - with Lyn Evans

Dynamic Floral and Landscape Abstracts in Ink and Watercolour - capture your favourite flowers and fells! 

An exciting course from Lyn Evans combining these two favourite mediums.  Bring along your own favourite reference photos of your favourite flowers, fells and dramatic landscapes and Lyn will show you how to create very loose and flowing paintings using two or three Acrylic inks and a few watercolours.

You will learn by adding water to ink marks, seeing it flow then adding more colour and watching while the magic happens.

An opportunity to let go with colour and line and produce some beautiful pictures and learn new techniques at the same time. Please bring your own materials - see below

Everyone brings acrylic inks, watercolours and paper.

About the Artist    I have painted throughout most of my life, from my years at Sunderland Art College to the present day,  I’m inspired mostly by the more unusual colours of nature. The early morning or late evening light, particularly during the Autumn months, is a favourite. I paint in oil, pastel and watercolours, each one bringing a different quality to the work.  So often it is the subject that will dictate the medium used.  Pastel is unsurpassed for colour and texture while oils excel in quality and the ability to move or blend.

Watercolour, with its more delicate character, is ideal for the beautiful misty days that we have in plenty in Cumbria.I paint everything and anything but landscape is my first love.So the countryside in which I live and the quality of light enjoy are present in all my work. My influences are Chien Chung Wei, the Taiwanese watercolourist, Iain Stewart, the Scottish watercolourist  (both of whom I have painted with) and  Casey Klahn the American pastelist.
