Service Description

Join artist Andrew Cheddie Sookrah for an exciting exploration of the vibrant colour, dynamic form, holistic structure, depth and texture that is indicative of an Impressionistic Contemporary Landscape painting; their interconnected relationship with objects and the surroundings they are in. Leveraging the attributes of this versatile medium while working from a supplied reference image, you will continue your exploration of how to observe, interpret and move beyond the obvious to develop a vibrant painting in your own voice, using confident and informed brushstrokes. You will refine your ability to create impactful design and composition, extracting only necessary information from your reference. Working from one of Andrew’s images taken on his extensive travels, you will create a painting with that WOW factor… Basic drawing techniques, perspective, composition, colour, texture, use of material will be explored.
