Creating Reflections ~ Water in the Landscape with Frances Winder
An exciting workshop with this popular tutor, well known for her landscapes, many depicting beautiful reflections on water.
The workshop is suitable for all abilities, and explores both the simpler techniques, as well as the more unusual. Acrylic paint, watercolour, gouache and oil pastel are all demonstrated, although you may choose to focus on just one medium. You will be creating several experimental pieces during the day.
If you are a beginner Frances recommends gouache paint, and you will need basic colours, as well as good paper to work on. The recommended materials list is available on booking (do please message us if you wish to see this before booking )
Frances writes ...I work from sketches, backed up with photos if I need more information. Please bring reference material with you, sketches, photos or just ideas you like. This course is all about exploring techniques for capturing the feeling of water in the landscape and enjoying ourselves. I will be able to help you individually to achieve progress at your own ability level, whatever that may be.

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.
