This course comprises a total of 10 guided learning hours of theory and practice. You will research and create seascape images using sketchbooks, photographs and internet sources and identify the importance and relationship between drawing to painting. You will then select, transfer and scale your images using a traditional method onto your chosen surface; examine the qualities of acrylic paints and how to use them effectively and produce an individual colour and tonal palette appropriate to your subject matter. Students will experiment with mixing, blending, application methods and techniques and test the difference between brush and painting knife styles in order to create a least two paintings of substantial quality. You will also examine and discuss the nature and range of seascape painters through some historical periods i.e. Romanticism and JWM Turner.
