Composition for Representational PaintingOil, acrylic, pastel OR watercolour
20–21 February 2021
The greatest painters in the realist traditions have also been great designers. While non-representational abstract art is often easier to analyse in terms of composition, underpinning the work of representational masters is a strong appreciation for composition.
This weekend we will analyse how these artists elevated the motifs observed from the three dimensions of life into masterpieces of two dimensional art.

Cancellation / Refund Policy
Day one: we will be exploring concepts primarily using pencil and paper so bring
- an A4 pad,
- 2B pencil and
- black marker with a chisel point.
Day two: I will encourage you to create multiple concepts rather than labour on one or two. My emphasis is on design rather than technique, so you may use the medium of your choice.
Choose an economic surface appropriate to your medium as this will encourage experimentation [expensive papers and canvas are inhibiting!].
Not large, A3 [32×45 cm] or quarter imperial [37×28 cm] as a guide.
Ten sheets minimum.
