Each week we tackle a different subject – landscape from reference or a still life, for example.  We will be looking at elements such as colour, tone and composition to help each individual student in their portrayal of the subject, make progress and find their own style.

Students should bring their own paints – acrylics are very suitable for such a class – and canvas/paper, brushes, etc.  Bring along your own easel if you wish.

Tuesday 17 October – session cancelled and rearranged for Tuesday 31 October.

You may also enjoy our Portraiture Class on the 3rd Oct.


Somerset based Joanna Commings is an Associate of The South West Academy. She was born in London and started drawing and painting from an early age, inspired by her father who was an artist. “Initially my main interest was in portraiture for which I still take commissions on a sale or return basis,” she explains. “But when I moved to Cornwall over a decade ago the wild and beautiful scenery here influenced me to turn to landscape painting. This has now become my major passion.” Joanna works mainly in acrylics, which she loves “for their versatility and flexibility” on handmade watercolour papers, canvas or board.
