Dorset pink poppy fields at sunrise 2022

Sunrise and mist: pink poppy field and a Dorset church.

Saturday 17th March 9.30 – 1.30, Holt Village Hall, near Wimborne, Dorset.

 

Matisse and Dufy style still life photography class at Holt, in conjunction with art teacher Penny Wilton.

Working from several still life sets we’ll take a variety of photos, paying attention to good composition, colour interaction etc.

Later in the morning Penny will help participants develop their work into Matisse style cut out pictures, or Dufy loose paintings.

This will be a fun and creative morning, giving you a set of photographs from which to make a painting on the day, and afterwards.
