Acrylic Painting - Under African Skies

With Fiona Ní Ghliasáin

October Live Online Classes

Wednesday evenings 5th and  12th  October 7pm-9pm


This online course is the third in a series of two week classes focusing on different aspects of nature based painting. All of the classes are interconnected and you can choose to engage with all or choose the blocks that you feel are most suited to your needs as an artist. The classes are guided and run in a relaxed manner so that you can develop at your own speed. These classes are guided online classes and are not recorded.


This two week course will focus on African Skies and silhouettes of animals. How to create distance in a sky line. Creating simple structures within the painting that give great effects. How low light can effect animals in a painting and how to utilise colour to get the best results. The style used in this class is abstract. 


All of these classes are taught in a relaxed guided manner, with the aim of allowing you to develop your own artistic style, at a pace that best suits you.
