A two day intensive painting workshop for those artists wishing to energise their painting practice.

Day One dealt with 'simplification' with a limited colour palette - exercises encouraged quick responses with large brushes on a range of scales.                                                            

Day Two dealt with colour massing - how to look at reducing the human figure to essential contrasts in order to move the painting forward.
