David Tress is coming to Rhosygilwen again.

Unexpectedly, a few places have become available and this has enabled us to open up the bookings!

Painting Landscape – Structure and Expressive Response

This is a unique opportunity to be tutored by one of Britain’s leading landscape painters. In this five day landscape painting course David Tress will be looking at the building blocks of representational landscape painting – light, space, tone, colour, composition – and will also be exploring expressive responses to landscape. Each day will include demonstrations and studio work, and sketching and drawing in the countryside surrounding Rhosygilwen Mansion. The course itself will primarily take place in The Oak Hall (Neuadd y Dderwen). Please make sure to bring some wet weather clothes – we would love to guarantee good weather, but unfortunately we can’t!

Tuition will be both as a group, with demonstrations and discussions, and individually for all course members with help, discussion and suggestions. Demonstrations will be in acrylic, some of them using mixed media and collage.

This course is suited to those with painting experience. The fee includes tuition, accommodation, and lunches and evening meals for five nights (25-30th August inclusive) at Rhosygilwen Mansion, one of West Wales’ most loved arts and music venues. On the night 25th August there will be a ‘Meet & Greet’ for participants to get to know other members on the course, and David, too.

Details of the course and Rhosygilwen can be obtained by telephoning the office on 01239 841387 for more information and a booking form. (Please leave a message if there is no reply and we will get back to you).
