Roy demonstrates Seascapes in Oils for Art Societies and other groups throughout the UK. Bookings by email please.

Workshops and Tuition

Roy teaches seascapes in oils to groups or individuals, and is available for workshops, at which he works step by step with you from a piece of his own work, covering  the aspects of a seascape, composition, colour, the anatomy of  waves (from the artists point of view), and reactions with other objects. He demonstrates the techniques used to produce skies, waves, translucent water, foam bursts, rocks, rock spills, foam patterns reflections and refractions, moods and movement, to produce a pleasing and dynamic seascape.  For those who wish to use them he has tracings of the scene available. This helps speed up the process allowing more time for painting. He also provides descriptive colour charts to assist in colour mixing.

Following the success of my recent workshops at Frogmore, Devon, I will be tutoring  the following two day workshops, ALL MATERIALS  AND EQUIPMENT PROVIDED (ON LOAN), please bring along a suitable container/means in which to carry home your wet 20x16inch canvas board, if you prefer other than a table easel please bring your own, but they will have to be positioned considerately so as not to obstruct others view. Please bring along your own materials/ brushes if you prefer using them.
