We will look at the life and work of Georgia O’Keeffe, with a particular focus on her flower series, discuss the materials that we’ll be using, including paints, mediums, brushes and canvases, before going on to under paint our canvases in preparation.

Pointillism in Acrylics
Sun, 18 August, 13:30 – 16:30
The Court Street Gallery, Trowbridge
Pointillism is defined by its use of mark making and colour. Pointillism paintings are created from hundreds of dots of carefully placed pure colours, relying on the eye to mix the colours to achieve maximum luminosity, in a similar way to pixels on a screen.
Learn how to use reds, blues and yellows to create the whole spectrum of colours. In this workshop we will look at basic colour theory, pigment strength and colour mixing before going on to create a colourful acrylic painting to take away with you.
Suitable for all abilities - come and have a go!
