You will be painting flowers/blossoms in acrylic and finish off with some pastel.
Thuline will be bringing flowers and photographs or you can bring your own.

What will the course cover and how will it be taught?
All levels are welcome, however some experience will be useful.

You will be:
Mixing different tones of colour, different brush strokes
Understanding the influence of colours on each other
Create depth by losing the detail in the flowers further away….

What do I need to bring with me?
Please wear suitable clothing. We will be starting with acrylics:
Suggested colours to bring:
Cadmium red, Yellow ochre, Cadmium yellow pale, Ultramarine, Burnt umber(the red and yellow can vary, titanium white (is more pigmented than other whites)
Other useful ones: Cerulean blue, Windsor blue, Burnt sienna, Viridian green, other reds, Turquoise and any other colours you like using.
Pallet: Use a lid of a large storage box or a tray with a raised lip, tissue and baking or greaseproof paper
To draw an outline: Pencil (soft pencils preferred, 3B, or softer)/rubber
Brushes: Please bring a selection of big and small brushes. Personally, I like the flat and softer brushes.
A great pack is sold by Royal and Langnickel;12 Brush value pack. These can be used for both acrylic and Watercolour. The handles are light blue wooden, not plastic. But I will be bringing some to the sessions for you to purchase on the day.
Cloth or tissue to clean brushes and water containers (min 2)
To work on you can use:
I like the Cranford paper they sell in Youdells.(like card) And use a light coloured paper (usually champagne or Ivory). Half a sheet is a perfect size. Tell them it is for the course with Thuline, they will know what you need. You can also use Acrylic paper, If you want to use pastel in combination.
Please bring a pen, notebook and your glasses, if you need them.
