Landscapes in Soft Pastel
with Richard Suckling

Expressive landscape painting in soft pastel...

A three-day workshop with artist Richard Suckling.

On this wonderful course we will concentrate on creating landscape paintings in soft pastel where you will be encouraged to push your interpretation of a subject to create an expressive and personal finished painting. You will be taught various painting and drawing techniques available to a pastel artist, to see how you can make an exciting and contemporary landscape painting with elements of abstraction.

Surrounded by the stunning landscape of Exmoor and north Devon there will be plenty to inspire you!

Some of our reviews...

Inspiring weekend painting with friends.
 really enjoyed this three day exploration of the wonders of the vivid pigments of pastels. Richard is a great artist and also an inspirational teacher. We all benefitted from his informative demonstrations, and I particularly liked his guidance that allowed individual expression and style. I enjoyed being able to stay on site in the comfortable and stylish Moor and Sea accommodation, where Bridget and Richard gave us a warm welcome and the just delicious soup lunches. The only disappointment was the snow which meant that I couldn’t explore more of the beautiful coastline, but that can be rectified by booking on to another of the Moor and Sea courses :)

I thoroughly enjoyed my three days studying with Richard. He was a kind, insightful and encouraging teacher and I certainly gained confidence in this medium during the course. I left feeling very inspired and encouraged! Bridget and Richard were perfect hosts; accommodation was thoughtfully presented, spotless and very comfortable. Their catering was absolutely delicious home-cooked wholesomeness!
