Learn to Paint Like James... Get your paintbrushes at the ready aspiring and improving artists! Aclaimed watercolourist James Foot is staging two watercolour workshops in Gibraltar this month. The first from Tuesday 28th May to Saturday 1st June and the second from Monday 3rd June to Friday 7th. Beginners and experienced painters welcome.

three 38 x 28cm paintings during the week. The workshop group will meet each day for breakfast at 9.30am at the Waterfront restaurant, Queensway Quay, after which James will begin each working day with an hour demonstration of that day’s theme at 10.30am. He will talk through his decision making/composition ideas/method and will take questions from the group. From 11.30 students will disperse to work on that day’s theme and James will circulate amongst the students offering tuition, advice and encouragement. At around 2pm the group will gather for a group criticism of that day’s achievements — a positive criticism which will lead to the next day’s work. The workshop will end each day at approximately 3pm. The fee for the five days of the workshop is £250. This includes breakfast and all materials: Saunders/Waterford 640gm/sq/m watercolour paper, Rembrandt Watercolour paints from the painter’s own palette and a ProArte12 brush that the students have to keep. To register for the workshop a deposit of £100.00 is payable in advance. n For information or to book contact Sue McIntosh Tel: 200 44718 email: susan.mcintosh@hotmail.co.uk or jamesefoot@yahoo.co.uk
