Overview

I Am Inspired - Gillian Lee Smith 20th October 2019 - 25th October 2019 - 5 nights residential art workshop holiday, 4 days tutorial with Gillian Lee Smith.

Course Details: Since moving to the truly stunning, historic area of Northumberland, expressive and abstracted landscapes have become my way of exploring my love of this coastal area in my artwork.

I am very much inspired by the spaces between land and sea – these coastal communities, the heritage of the area and the way humans have made their marks on the landscape. Beautifully worn cottages, harbour walls crossed with ropes, ladders and the line of the tide and the incredible vast space of sea and sky.

There are also quite a few castles! I truly can’t wait to share this scenery and atmosphere with you as we explore the local area with sketchbooks and camera in hand and take our findings back to the workshop space to create our own interpretations in oil and cold was on paper.

The beauty of oil and cold wax is that it dries quickly enabling you to build up layers quickly and expressively. Whether you are new to landscapes or a seasoned painter, drawn to abstraction or inspired to create more representational works you are sure to find something to spark a personal and expressive response to this rugged and inspirational landscape.
