2017 Workshops at Blackwell Mill

Small workshops for four people held within her home on the River Wye. These workshops will lead you through Janet’s approach to mixed media painting. This will involve considering the composition and how it will lead your eye through the painting, working  onto full Imperial water colour paper (76 cm x 56 cm) and applying acrylic and pastel.

Still life mixed media -10th June

Looking at a series of objects you will create a still life painting on hot pressed watercolour paper. Janet will lead you through her techniques working firstly with acrylic and then adding pastel. – Sorry this is now cancelled but please contact me to be added to mailing list for further dates.

Painting along river Wye – Acrylic 12th September
