Stavros will give a brief demonstration and discuss the various aspects that go to create an expressive landscape painting.

Utilising these concepts, and working from their chosen image, participants will explore composition, design, tone, and technique and produce a completed landscape during the weekend.

This will be a practical ‘hands-on’ workshop and Stavros will offer guidance, and assist participants in the development of their work.
