Painting for the class

Class Description:

“Follow along with me as we take a stroll through this lovely wooded glade with all these autumnal colours and paint them. I will guide you through each stage of the painting in bite sized chunks so that you can build up the picture with confidence and have a finished painting at the end of the sessions.

I paint in different mediums but my favourite is watercolour and I want to share with you my love for this wonderfully fluid medium and show you how to build lovely, translucent washes to produce a painting with light and vitality.

Don’t be put off by the old adage ‘ watercolours are difficult’, you just need to plan ahead and keep your colours clean…and don’t overmix !

All the colours we will be using are transparent or semi transparent which means we can glaze successive colours over each other and develop dark and luminous sections without MUD !

So why not join me and get to grips with watercolour …it really can be Fun” !

Class Format:

Barry will demonstrate step by step, so that you can paint what he just demoed.

Since the class is interactive, you will be able to ask questions directly to Barry and get personal feedback.

Price: US $178 for 6 hours (2 * 3 hrs). If you can’t attend the class, you can buy the recording.

The price includes:

  • Personal feedback and critique during the class: Barry will give you time to paint and then look at each student work in progress and comment on it along the way. You will also receive a final critique at the end of the session.
  • The recording of both sessions for you to keep forever.
  • The opportunity to post on our  our V.I.E.W. facebook page, to share and get comments from the VIEW community of artists and teachers.

More about Barry Herniman:

“I am a full time artist and have been painting landscapes and seascapes for many years both in the studio and ‘en plein air’ with my trusty sketchbooks.

My favourite medium is watercolour, its immediacy and transparency is hard to beat and I never tire of watching the colours mix and mingle on the paper. There can be few things more challenging and exciting than painting and sketching in front of my chosen subjects whether it be in the heart of the country, perched on a coastal cliff or in a busy city. I have been tutoring for over 20 years but still get a buzz from watching students produce their own exciting works of art.

I travel extensively both at home and abroad doing demonstrations, tutoring workshops and painting holidays.

I write regular articles for the Artist magazine and have designed and produced my own lightweight ‘Cloverleaf Paintbox’ which is on sale worldwide”.
