Join leading painter Tim Fisher (aired live on Thu 6th Aug '20) as he paints Oaks Cottage, Loughrigg.
In this workshop, aimed at all abilities, you will be exploring how to turn a low key photograph into an interesting and exciting painting using ink line work combined with a limited palette of watercolours.
If time allows we will also be exploring brush techniques with a view to developing different foliage styles and shapes.
