Service Description

Join Jane Weatherley for a day of painting Seascapes at Portobello Beach. You may bring any medium of your choice as Jane is a teacher of all mediums from watercolour, to acrylic and water based oil. Please note all painting mediums including oil should be mixable with water only. The morning from 10.00am - 12.30pm will be spent making a first painting, and as the sun passes over the sky you will then make a second painting in the afternoon from 1.30 - 4pm. Seascapes are a glorious subject to paint with their never ending and changing vistas with how the light plays on the effects of water and sky. Together with the vibrant life surrounding Portobello, and enjoying a nice lunch in any of the cafes along the promenade, we hope to offer you a lovely day out at the beach but at the end also have one or two artworks to take home with you. Jane is a long standing tutor of The Edinburgh Drawing School and teaches students a diverse range of drawing techniques over all subjects. Jane has also taught for over 20 years at The Edinburgh College of Art. Summer time is a time to get out of the studio and take these skills and techniques and apply them to plein air environments, where we can be immersed into 'the now' with whatever the sun or clouds throw at us! Materials: - Any choice of paint or dry media - Paper or canvas to paint on - Paintbrushes - A rag or paper towel - pencil and eraser -water bottle - A portable plein air easel if you need one, or, a board with a portable seat to sit on. -a cap or sunhat - sun cream -clothing incase the weather changes Image Credits: 1.
