Join us for the first of two online painting workshops led by Yorkshire-based artist Richard Kitson, which take inspiration from works in the Wakefield Permanent Art Collection.
The day will start with a group painting tutorial making reference to The Wayside, Weardley by Owen Bowen (pictured above), through which you will receive guidance in proportion, composition and colour. Following this, you will work on your own original painting based on your own landscape images or the view from window, with inspiration from Bowen, Mary Lord and Peter Brook (pictured below).
