In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to follow me as I demonstrate the basics of 'abstracting' landscape elements.


This will give you the key skills and concepts of abstraction including line, design, and colour. participants will take home their own painting as well as valuable skills and techniques to enhance their own practice. 


During these workshops you will have the opportunity to investigate how to create an exciting, expressive composition. We'll develop abstracted landscapes, and explore how a personal, expressive 'gut response' to painting, underpinned by keen observation, drawing and painting skills, can really move your art to the next level.


As seen in Leisure Painter Magazine and Artists and Illustrators Magazine.


An opportunity not to be missed!


Suitable for people with a passion for art at all skill levels.

A successful, internationally acknowledged artist, Helen Elliott has a reputation as a talented and inspirational teacher. She is also a fully accredited Golden Artists Paints Inc. artist educator.
