Expressive Landscape painting course Jack Davis artist Cornwall


The Expressive Landscape five day course taught by artist Jack Davis is a fantastic new course aimed at freeing up your approach to landscape painting. Jack breaks down the painting process encouraging students to respond intuitively to the landscape. The course includes tuition with a variety of different paints and supports exploring how each different painting surface affects the process and the results. The painting methods used on the course are often far from traditional and as such it is a real eye opener in regard to new ways of working. At the heart of the course is always the response to the dramatic landscape of West Cornwall. Jack is an amazingly positive, sensitive and inspiring tutor who always manages to get the best out of people.

The course is open to all levels of experience from near beginners through to more advanced practicing artists. 

A reasonable level of fitness is required for this course as there wil be some coastal path walking and walking over uneven surfaces to get to a few of the venues.
