Create a gorgeous painting on canvas

Experience hosted by Lucinda

3.5 hours
Includes food, drinks, equipment
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

To start I will lead the guests into my garden to look at my garden studio and the paintings I am currently working on, I shall talk for a few minutes about being a professional artist and take questions.

Then we shall gather either in my large living room or in the garden, depending on the weather, where the guests will begin their own piece of art.

At first we will draw a jug of flowers using either pencil or charcoal, learning about tone, texture, composition and proportion. This will be followed by a light lunch of soup, bread and salad.

After lunch the guests will each be given their own canvas and I will provide acrylic paint and brushes for the guests to paint a flower 'still life'. This time we will focus on colour, colour mixing and understanding how to get the best out of brushwork and the qualities of the paint itself ( thickness, dryness, different brush strokes etc.) .
I will be on hand at all times to give expert advice and encouragement.

To round off the day we will enjoy tea, coffee and cake while the finished paintings dry.
Other things to note
Please wear old clothes or clothes you are happy to get paint on. Although I am providing aprons they might not offer total protection.
We have 3 Cats and 2 Tortoises.

Meet your host, Lucinda

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
I adore painting and love to create rich, colourful, vibrant art influenced by pattern and texture that I see all around me.
My work is in collections all over the world and I love the idea of coming across one unexpectedly one day.
I have been teaching art as well as creating it for more than 25 years and enjoy the exchange of interest and ideas that teaching brings.
It is a joy to go to work in my studio everyday, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm with you.
