Mixed Media, Watercolour & Pastel Techniques with Carole Baker at Patchings Art, Craft & Photography Festival in Nottinghamshire, Friday, July 14, 2017

Organised by The Artist and Leisure Painter in association with GreatArt, one of the UK’s largest online art materials’ suppliers, who will provide each student with over £90(rrp) of materials for each session


Carole Baker works in mixed media to create paintings full of bold, vibrant colour and texture. This workshop will focus on combining watercolour and pastel, but treating them in a clearly contrasting way. You will experiment with techniques, such as mark making, spraying, splattering, lifting out and incorporating pastels, then follow Carole, step by step, to paint a landscape with movement and energy. Carole will also discuss the importance of compositional planning and keeping a sketchbook. The morning session will run from 10am to 1pm and the afternoon session from 2pm to 5pm.

About The Artist

Follow cover artist Henrietta Graham's example and set yourself a challenging project to create a series of paintings on a particular subject matter, or why not try something different from your usual practice to keep your creativity flowing? Our professional artist/tutors offer plenty of ideas this month, from how to paint loose watercolour landscapes by Lea Nixon, unusual compositions from a high viewpoint by Jo Quigley, and how to use pattern to dramatic effect in your still lifes by Penny German. Hazel Soan demonstrates how to paint a lively self-portrait in watercolour, Glyn Macey shows what you can discover by studying Rauschenberg's work and techniques plus we include articles on understanding the structure of the head and how to measure and see more objectively to help improve your figure work. Oil painters will love Martin Kinnear's new series on oil techniques, starting with the importance of value and chiaroscuro, while Charles Williams takes a thought-provoking look at the age-old issue of 'when is a painting finished?' With more besides, you won't be short of inspiration and helpful advice in this month's issue!
