Students will enjoy this fresh approach to make your traditional landscape subjects more exciting. You will be encouraged to explore colour and form in an interpretive manner, and to experiment with powerful underpaintings, loose brushwork and the use of large palette knives. This is for students of all levels who are interested in a more emotional result without the traditional boundaries.

Sharon is known for her vibrant approach to colour. Always a lot of fun and packed with knowledge and gentle encouragement, she will lead you on this adventure into the Wild Open Spaces. You may work from your own photographic reference materials if you like, or choose from the teachers from florals, lakes trees, etc. and will be given guidance on how to make them more exciting and dynamic.
