I love the speedy time-lapse videos that our Watermill painting tutor Mark Warner sends us from time to time and I can’t resist sharing them with you. Here’s another one, a seascape. That’s just a screen shot above: you can see the whole video by clicking here.
And here’s another painting by Mark, of Stiperstones Ridge in Shropshire, England in acrylic and conte. Mark says: “It was cloudy to start, then there was glorious sunshine. I have been up there when the weather has not been that kind too!”
We’ll promise you sunny days when Mark come to Tuscany this Summer. Nine places are already already taken for this course, so we have room for three more painters (and their partners). Details below.
Mark Warner is an artist and tutor who lives in Shropshire in England. He is not only a respected artist but also a highly professional tutor with many years of teaching experience. Mark is passionate about working outside, tutoring numerous day and residential plein air holidays. His sessions are very popular — and he leads by example, creating a relaxed and encouraging environment. He says “I adore using colour while interpreting the light, weather and a love for the materials. I work directly in the field (literally on many occasions!) from sketches created outside as well as notes/photographs taken on location.”
Sketching is at the heart of Mark’s work: “This is important in the development of a piece and on many occasions, forming an integral part of the painting itself.” Mark works on coloured grounds, incorporating aspects of mark-making and directional brushstrokes within the work. He says: “I continue to draw inspiration from the landscape, although subject matter can be broad and at times very different.” Here’s Mark’s ‘Harbour Boat Sketch.’
Acrylics/watercolours incorporating conte/pastel. Three or so places left
