Flower landscapes in acrylic – developing a freer style

By popular demand, we are offering another chance to work with artist Sharon Black and repeat the very successful workshop held in February.

The workshop is targeted at people who would welcome some guidance in developing a freer style when using acrylic paints and inks. It is based on Sharon’s own vibrant, colourful style and experimental approach to painting. Some basic principles about using acrylics will be covered on day one – including materials, paints and mediums – and will also include tips on composition, colour mixing and paint techniques. There will be demonstrations and plenty of opportunity to try various techniques and be as inventive as possible.

On day two, everyone will have a chance to apply their new skills and techniques by working on their own painting, inspired by landscapes and flowers.

Sharon Black has had a passion for art as long as she can remember. As a child her vivid imagination was fuelled by a love of reading and old movies which spilled out in the form of drawings or paintings.

Inspired by nature’s rich colours and shapes, she paints striking, flower landscapes in bold, vibrant, energising colours. Always seeking to make an impact with colour and texture, Sharon paints mostly in acrylic paint but also incorporates acrylic inks, oil pastels and paint pens into her work. Texture is sought with the use of glue, gesso and versatile acrylic mediums. She regularly exhibits at the annual Open Studios North Fife event in May, and in various venues throughout Fife.
