‘Create a Meadow’ Oil Painting Workshop £130

May 13, 2023 @ 9:45 am - 1:45 pm


Learn how to ‘Create a Meadow’ painting with Sue Rapley.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to invite you to join me at my ‘signature’ workshop, where I share with you my love of oil painting and my creative process.

Ideal for absolute beginners, as well as those with some painting experience, I will guide you through an easy step by-step process. This half-day workshop offers you the opportunity to explore using oil paints and a palette knife to create your own beautiful meadow-inspired artwork, and to learn the techniques required to continue your art journey at home.

Prior to the workshop a PARTICIPANT PACK is sent out you via email, which contains full details and timeline of the half-day event. And, on arrival to the workshop you will receive your PAINTING KIT which includes a complete set of painting materials for your personal use, and to take home.

What will you learn with me?

  • Understand the colour wheel and the basics of colour mixing.
  • Appreciate the beauty of using water-mixable oil paints and their buttery texture.
  • Learn about the environmental benefits of using water-mixable oil paints, with no need to use solvents, only soapy water to clean painting tools.
  • Apply techniques and explore movement to create the base layers of a painting, which is known as an ‘under-painting’.
  • Learn how to use a palette knife to apply the paint in layers to create depth and texture.
  • Complete a collaborative piece of artwork which is supplied prepared for you in your Participant Pack.
  • Take away new skills and materials to create your own artworks in your own time, that I hope you will feel proud enough to frame.
  • Keep your complete set of water-mixable oil paints, palette knife, and my preferred list of suppliers of where to order more materials, so you can continue your own art journey at home.

What is included in the workshop?

New for 2023, the ‘Create a Meadow’ Painting Workshop will be hosted by me at my Cambridge Studio. The return of this popular half-day workshop is filled with step-by-step demos and all the guidance, tips and encouragement you need to create your own beautiful meadow paintings. All participants will receive a Participant Pack and complete Painting Kit to take home. Refreshments & Snacks will be provided.

…and, Yes! we have coffee breaks too!

This workshop is the ideal opportunity to try something NEW, but without the need to create perfectly. Allow yourself to be open, and let your curiosity guide you.

And, of course, the most wonderful thing about this workshop experience is that unique mix of dedicated ‘me-time’ and the best kind of social interactive creative FUN.

Tickets can be purchased as unique gifts for the art lover/enthusiast in your life, or simply for yourself.
