Workshop description: A group of contemporary Scottish artists, including Emma Davis and Gordon Wilson, use an eye-catching abstracted landscape format that is great fun to work with. Cheryl has developed a method of taking these landscape concepts and, with very few perspective rules, creating colourful and playful compositions. Participants should bring their own photos of barns, tree silhouettes, cottages, flowers, or weeds. Their shapes will be simplified and painted as a more abstract setting.

Materials: TBA nearer the date
