In two hours learn how to create a dynamic acrylic painting quickly. Learn how to mix colours and work around a whole painting at once capturing an impressionistic atmosphere and sense of place without fussy detail.

' Within a couple of hours Ruth had produced a wonderful representation of George Street, that would not be out of place in any living room! Of course, there was some finishing of detail still required, this would be added later after a period of drying. All told an exciting and instructive demonstration by a very competent and respected artist. Everyone took in new ideas and thoroughly enjoyed the day.' David - Yoxhall Art Group.

The subject matter was very complicated but we all managed to get a good result in only two hours! I hope you will come to us again.' Jean Smalley Art Group.
