Perhaps a painting class is for you?
Whether painting in oil or acrylic some things are a must. Olga will talk about good composition, drawing, perspective (linear & colour) and form pattern (values). She will look at what works & where to can make improvements.

Drawing – Taking a Line for a Walk

This week, RHGA members created small, spontaneous works using Paul Klee’s inspirational quote, ‘Drawing is the art of taking a line for a walk’.
Drawings were created using one continuous line and spending a maximum of 5 minutes on each drawing. Artist  were inspired by their pets, flowers (Spring is here!), still life and portraiture. What a great variety.
