Painting From The Landscape at Cuckoo Farm Studios

This November Join Lupe Cunha at Cuckoo Farm Studios as she shows you how to painting from the landscape exploring the inspiration to be gathered from the Cuckoo Farm Studio surroundings. Derelict buildings provide an interesting combination of shapes and textures from which to develop an abstract/figurative painting.


Lupe will take you through the process, first sketching from location (or photos if weather does not allow outside work), then canvas preparation and colour mixing and finishing with creative mark making  and printing to enrich the final work.

On this day, all materials will be provided. We will be working in  Pastels and Acrylic using Mediums and Textures to enrich the work. Please bring along any brushes you may have and a painting shirt or apron to protect your clothes.

This first TASTER SESSION will be expanded into a three day workshop on Friday mornings on the 14Nov, 28Nov and 12Dec which can be booked individually 15.00 per session or 40.00 for the three sessions. For these workshops, participants can work in acrylic, watercolour or oils  and mixed media working will be encouraged.

In January, Date TBC, Lupe will run another All Day Workshop on a Saturday.

'I have been running courses in Hertfordshire for the last ten years at various venues and am now looking at introducing these same workshop here in a Colchester, making use of the facilities available to me here at Cuckoo Farm.' Lupe Cunha MA Fine Art CertED
