This course explores the methods Jason has developed to render sometimes complex patterns in the sand with a limited number of marks. You will also examine the direction of movement and perspective structure that underpins the picture. In other words – he will expain how and why the marks and methods he uses work within beach scene painting.

Did you miss your chance to paint at Cambois?

Jason has added a second date at Cambois on the 1st of September. full details can be viewed here

At the first session Jason concentrated on painting shapes in the sand to capture the look of the sand pools. This session will look at tuning your skills at painting the sky directly from nature and drawing and painting figures and dogs.

This is the final part of the Italian urn series. In this painting Jason uses methods very similar to Sargent, combining watercolour and gouache to grade the paint from opaque to transparent when he feels the image will benefit from this approach.
